Expert Witness Tracking

We recently completed updated some functionality on an interesting project to facilitate the tracking of expert witnesses. This tracking capability allows law firms and clients to understand the prior work product of expert witnesses as well as to be sure that prior work product is properly used and understood to ensure consistency and to reduce the likelihood of incurring redundant costs for securing the same opinion or same type of opinion multiple times.

The system which we implemented allowed us to track the basics of an expert witness (name, title, address, phone, email, etc.). We also developed functionality to post their resume. Additionally, we developed a method of posting up work product from the experts and associating each file to the case(s) and expert(s) who developed it. And, finally, we also built a method of tracking which experts worked on which case for our clients.
