Banking Expert Witnesses
What is a banking expert witness?
Banking expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in commercial banking, lending and lender liability, foreclosure, loan servicing, investment banking, valuation, regulatory affairs, forensic accounting, and/or financial markets. For specific litigation support cases, clients have requested a banking expert that also had a background as an economist or CPA. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
What types of cases require a banking expert witness?
Cases that require a baking expert witness may relate to bank fraud, probate, embezzlement, or family law. Banking expert witnesses can provide support in cases such as lending disputes with bank customers, contractual disputes, banking practices, and mortgages.

What litigation support work might a banking expert witness be expected to perform?
Expert witness services by a banking specialist can represent either the plaintiff or defendant. Support work could include document review, authoring expert reports, providing expert opinions, arbitration support, and/or courtroom testimony. In addition, clients may seek a banking industry or lending expert for pre-litigation consulting services. While many experts have years of experience in banking and financial institutions, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people can understand the litigation matters and evidence.
