The saying “timing is everything” applies to litigation just as it applies to all other aspects of life. It rings true throughout the course of litigation­—and often includes the important decision of when to hire an economic-damages expert.

Every case does not necessarily require you to retain an economic-damages consultant for the benefit of your client. For instance, a top gun may not be needed for those cases in which the economic damages claimed are low in amount or easily calculated. However, even in the most straightforward litigation, an economic-damages ace can provide great assistance in developing your case.


Whether the case is straightforward or complex, an economic-damages expert can play an integral role in effectively developing your case pre-trial and the manner in which it is presented to the trier of fact. The right professional can provide critical assistance in identifying potential damage issues of which you and the client may not be aware—and in developing winning strategies to further the client’s interests.
