A data analytics expert witness typically has an advanced degree, with a background and expertise in computer science, statistical analysis, mathematics, software engineering, and/or data science. Cahn Litigation Services is frequently called upon by law firm clients to locate expert witnesses that can support matters involving data analytics.
Whereas a data analysis focuses on understanding the past; data analytics focuses on why things occurred and predicting what will happen in the future. Insights from data analysis are used to guide decision making, and tie into the emerging fields of machine learning, big data, and data mining. Areas that benefit from data analytics include: marketing optimization, web analytics/SEO, people/workforce analytics, financial institutions risk analytics, and security analytics, as examples.
Data analytics matters that require expert witness services typically involve intellectual property, criminal activity, fraud, or cyber security.
Litigation support by a data analytics expert witness could include digital forensic work, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony in court. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise in the subject, an expert witness in data analytics must possess the ability to explain digital evidence to a juror. In addition, clients may seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
Cahn Litigation Services has completed numerous searches for an expert witness in the data analytics area, providing candidates for each case to the specifications provided by the attorney in charge. Whether it be for a matter concerning statistical sampling, computer forensics, or banking, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn the expert witness search around quickly. We provide the right balance of expertise and testimony, finding the perfect expert for the project at hand.
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.
