Forensic Economist Expert Witnesses
Forensic economist 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 economic expert witness must not only have the appropriate substantive expertise, but should also possess the ability to explain complex financial issues and evidence to lay people. An expert witness should also be prepared for the scrutiny of a cross-examination. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may require a forensic economics expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. The chosen expert could be a member of an industry organization such as the National Association of Forensic Economics (NAFE) or the National Association of Forensic Accountants (NAFA).
Forensic economics applies economic theories and methods to pecuniary damages matters. Forensic economists can be engaged to support financial legal matters including personal and commercial litigation economic damages, fraud, intellectual property disputes (e.g., patents, trade secrets), breach of contract, economic loss due to personal injury, antitrust disputes, and other business, property, and asset valuation.
Litigation support by a forensic accounting expert witness could include forecasting, economic research, economic analysis, damage calculations, an expert report, arbitration, depositions, and expert testimony in the courtroom.
