Algorithmic trading expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in algorithmic trading, economic analysis, machine learning, and/or financial markets. Cahn Litigation Services is the expert witness placement service provider of choice by law firm clients to locate an expert witness that can support algorithmic trading and other financial services matters.
Algorithmic trading uses complex formulas to make decisions to buy or sell financial securities on an exchange. Also known as automated trading and algo trading, this high frequency trading technology enables a firm to make tens of thousands of trades per second.
Representative matters that call for an expert in financial and algorithmic trading legal disputes involve issues pertaining to:
• Electronic trading
• Algorithmic trading market issues
• Risk management
• High frequency trading market issues
• Financial services intellectual property
Litigation support by an algorithmic trading expert witness could represent either the plaintiff or defendant, and work could include case review, arbitration, expert opinion, an expert report, expert testimony, and/or trial testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a financial services expert advisor for pre-litigation consulting services.
While many experts have expertise in algorithmic trading, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby a juror can understand the litigation matters and evidence.
Please Note: All Cahn Litigation expert witness searches are customized to attorneys' precise specifications and preferences. Attorneys are encouraged to discuss search parameters with a Cahn search specialist.
