What is an Economic Expert Witness?
An economic expert witness helps to support legal cases by providing key testimony regarding economic and financial loss. They typically have advanced education and experience in forensic economics. An expert will typically conduct economic analysis, damage calculations, author opinions, consult with attorneys to provide litigation support, and testify during legal trials.
Hiring an experienced and capable economic expert is critical to proving loss and damages during trial. Their job often involves explaining complex theory in a language that the average juror can understand. They use objective data and advanced statistical techniques when assessing economic damages to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the calculations are reasonable.

Economic Damages Calculation
We have the financial knowledge and experience required to work on complex financial disputes. Forensic economics can offer more reasonable calculations than forensic accounting. As an economics expert, we can analyze a multitude of factors that are beyond the scope of accountants. Examples include unemployment, supply and demand of vocations, life expectancy, taxes, expected raises, and time value of money. This means loss and valuation calculations will go further in proving your case.
