Lending Expert Witnesses
What is a lending expert witness?

Some lending expert witnesses are Certified Public Accountants (CPA), Forensic Accountants (CFA), or experts in construction law.
What types of cases require a lending expert witness?
Representative matters that call for an expert in lending involve legal issues pertaining to:
- bank operations,
- loan workout agreements,

What litigation support work might a lending expert witness be expected to perform?
Representing the plaintiff or defendant, litigation support by a lending expert could include document review, research and authoring expert reports, providing expert opinions, deposition testimony, and/or courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, legal counsel may request an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a banking industry expert, loan servicer, or finance advisor for pre-litigation consulting services. While many experts have expertise in banking, loan, and lender liability issues, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing expert testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people can understand the litigation matters and evidence.
