Identify an Expert

The early identification of your expert witnesses and the way in which they are briefed are paramount to the quality of an expert’s report.

Identifying with clinical certainty the right expert for your case is one of the most important factors to a successful outcome. Concert takes all the hard work out of the search and screening, contracting, management and administrative processes so you can focus on your core remit, the application of the rule of Law. After the sourcing and screening phase, we present a shortlist of Experts to you for final vetting and approval. For more complex cases, we can engage experts across multiple disciplines to form an expert team. One of the big advantages to engaging Concert is that we can move very quickly to respond to your case, we can contact and source experts in a flash, and our unique business model allows us to deliver a premium managed service without the premium price tag.

Brief your Expert

The brief is the most important starting point for the expert to commence engagement and get traction. Analysis of the case file in line with their area of expertise, case strategy, requirement & scope early in the process is crucial. The briefing process is multi-phased. Concert mandates that all briefs are given both verbally with the engaging parties and then followed by detailed written instructions outlining the obligations of the expert, the scope of the engagement, the issues arising from the dispute including any supporting artifacts or information required, available or requested, to initiate the process.

A project manager will work alongside the Expert and legal team to ensure project commencement and integration are seamless, so as to achieve maximum traction in the shortest period of time. The detail, the quality of information and data captured and the format in which the brief is presented is critical to the outputs in the experts report. Concert can provide all necessary guidance, documentation and process to ensure this is approached with integrity, and that clear representation of findings, facts, evidence and opinion contained within the experts report link to all court documents relevant to proceedings with a supporting audit trail.
