We found an expert with a PhD in Economics from a top university and was a professor of agricultural economics. With an expertise in commodity markets, including grain markets, he was highly knowledgeable about the issues at play in the case. Additionally, he was highly skilled in calculating the financial impact of disruptions of commodity trading and had prior experience with the commodity markets. Well published, he had authored over a hundred papers in peer reviewed journals. Finally, he had been deposed dozens of times in agriculture-related cases and had testified many times in court and in front of the International Trade Commission. The case was settled very favorably in the plaintiff’s favor.
