Econometrics Expert Witnesses
What is an econometrics expert witness?
Econometrics expert witness candidates typically have a background in finance, economics, mathematics, and/or statistics. An econometrics expert witness must not only have the appropriate substantive expertise, but should also possess the ability to explain complex financial issues and evidence to a judge and jury. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may require an economist with prior expert testimony experience. The chosen expert could be a member of an industry organization such as the International Association for Applied Econometrics (IAAE), the American Economic Association (AEA), or the Econometric Society.
What types of cases require an econometrics expert witness?
Econometrics uses economic theory, mathematics, and statistical analysis to quantify economic events. The objective of econometric theory is to convert qualitative data into quantitative data. Econometricians use econometric methods in areas such as finance, labor economics, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and economic policy making. A specialist in econometrics can be engaged to support financial matters such as commercial litigation, economic damage calculations, fraud, economic loss, and antitrust disputes.
