Celebrity Expert Witnesses
Celebrity expert witness candidates typically have a background in contract law, crisis management, media relations, intellectual property law, and could have specific expertise in royalty rates arrangements or as a producer or agent. Public relations and reputation management are usually very important issues for a celebrity. In addition to business and marketing issues, celebrities also need to concern themselves with stalking and safety issues. Expert witness services for cases involving a celebrity could include research, an expert report, expert opinion, mediation, expert testimony and/or trial testimony. An economic damages expert could also be called upon to provide lost profits and damages expertise.
