Economics expert witness candidates typically have experience in forensic accounting, economic damages, business valuation, tax law, and/or are a certified public accountant (CPA) or certified fraud examiner. An economics 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 National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the American Economic Association (AEA), or the National Association of Forensic Accountants (NAFA).
Microeconomics analyzes basic elements in the economy (such as households, firms, buyers, and sellers), while macroeconomics studies the economy as a system (such as employment, capital, land, inflation, and economic growth). Forensic economics applies economic theories and methods to pecuniary damages matters. A forensic economist can be engaged to support financial matters including personal and commercial litigation economic damage calculations, fraud, economic loss due to personal injury, antitrust disputes, and other business, property, and asset valuation.
Litigation support by an economics expert witness could include document analysis, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition, trial preparation, and expert testimony in court.
