Interest rates expert witness candidates typically have expertise in banking, financial institutions, accounting, corporate finance, and economics. The chosen expert witness may be published in related financial topics such as banking regulations, commercial banks or financial risk, and should be familiar with federal rule relating to interest rates. An interest rate expert witness also carries the responsibility of professional conduct and expert testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people can understand the litigation issues and expert evidence.
Litigation support by an interest rates expert witness could represent either the plaintiff or defendant, and work could include case review, arbitration, expert opinion, an expert report, deposition testimony, and/or courtroom testimony.
