Consumer Survey Expert Witnesses
Consumer survey expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in marketing and marketing research, consumer research, consumer confusion, consumer behavior, survey design, and/or consumer psychology. In high-profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may require a professional with prior expert witness testimony experience. While many experts have expertise in consumer surveys, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people can understand the litigation matter and survey evidence.
Via market research, a consumer survey involves gathering information on the satisfaction and potential actual confusion among both existing and new products and services. A consumer survey can be used to gauge advertising effectiveness, packaging appeal, brand awareness, pricing, consumer perceptions, consumer confusion and other marketing issues. Survey methods can be written, via telephone, online, and/or focus groups. Oftentimes, respondents in a particular demographic are targeted, for example gender, income, education or location.
