Rubin Anders deploys a team and utilizes search methodologies designed to provide thoroughly vetted potential experts before we present them to clients. Our researchers are themselves Ph.D. scientists, engineers, and lawyers. Our professionals have the knowledge and experience to evaluate nuanced information in candidates’ credentials, as those nuances may relate to the specific needs of our clients’ cases.

Depending on the client’s specific needs, we consider a variety of factors for potential expert witnesses. Some of the factors we typically use at the beginning of a search include:
  • The stated needs of our client
  • Academic background and certifications
  • Industry experience/professional background
  • Patent credentials
  • Testifying experience and background
  • Geography, location, and travel requirements or limitations
  • Qualifications, considering the opposing side’s witnesses
  • Potential conflicts of interest
  • Fees

We are singularly committed to quickly locating the perfect expert for your case. To that end, we work with our clients to determine their timeline, priorities, and flexibility on the above criteria, in addition to considering other potential case-specific screening factors.

When you choose to work with Rubin Anders to identify expert witnesses, you are welcome to interview any of our presented candidates at no charge to you. We will arrange telephone or video calls with the experts at your convenience. 

Once you choose an expert, we handle contract negotiations, billing, and extra paperwork, freeing you to focus on the details of your case.
