Bonds Expert Witnesses
What is a bonds expert witness?
Bonds expert witness candidates have years of experience and expertise in a variety of financial matters, specifically those related to investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, and mutual funds. Bonds expert witness candidates’ areas of expertise may include stocks, pensions, annuities, IPOs, and equity investments and may include areas of specialization in construction lending and/or government funding. Bonds expert witness candidates often have advanced degrees (PhD, MBA, CPA) in banking, finance, economics, or forensic accounting. Bonds expert witnesses may be members of professional organizations such as the National Association of Surety Bond Producers (NASBP) or the National Association of Bond Lawyers (NABL).
What types of cases require a bonds expert witness?
Representative litigation matters that call for an expert in bonds involve issues pertaining to:
- brokerage due diligence,
- securities fraud,
- fraudulent conveyance,
- insider trading,
- brokers and hedge funds class action,
- misuse of information,
- portfolio management and investment strategy,
- real estate hedge funds,
- complex securities, or
- fiduciary duty.
Cases may be civil or criminal and require not only bonds expertise, but the ability to communicate findings to juries for ease of understanding.
What litigation support work might a bonds expert witness be expected to perform?
Litigation support by a bonds expert witness could include research and authoring expert reports, arbitrations, financial/forensic analyses, economic valuations, providing expert opinions, deposition testimony, and expert testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek a bonds expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
