Where lawyers and experts meet

April 27, 2017, Commercial Dispute Resolution

Louise Freeman spoke on a panel at CDR’s Spring Competition Litigation Symposium and is quoted in a Commercial Dispute Resolution article regarding the role of expert evidence in class action proceedings and how lawyers can work effectively with economists and industry experts. According to Freeman, “Lawyers need to think a little bit more before getting to trial about what evidence the experts are going to give, what assumptions they’re working on and what support they need from a combination on the factual evidence from witnesses and industry experts.” She adds, “It’s incumbent on the lawyers to make sure we immerse experts, to make sure they’ve seen all the relevant evidence. It’s also essential for lawyers to test everything the expert is telling us, not because we doubt what they’re saying, but because we have to understand it.
