In an effort to control or affect public perception, a specialist in public relations (PR) manages the release of information between an individual or organization and the public. A public relations expert witness typically has a background and extensive experience in marketing. Cahn Litigation Services is frequently called upon by attorney clients to locate an expert in public relations to present an expert’s opinion and evidence to support a case. Often, the selected expert is a member of an industry organization such as the Public Relations Society of America (PRSC), the International Public Relations Association, (IPRA), and/or the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management.

Litigation support by a public relations expert witness could include analysis, an expert report, an expert opinion, expert witness testimony, and trial testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, counsel may request an expert with prior expert witness experience. It is essential that a testifying expert possess the ability to provide expert testimony in such a manner that a judge and jury can understand the underlying factual evidence. In addition, a law firm may seek a subject matter expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
