Has Your Firm Taken on SPAC Litigation? Here’s Why You Need to Hire Your Expert Witness Team Today
Here at the Orion Expert Network, we’ve been floored by the number of SPAC expert witness requests we’ve gotten over the past few months. SPAC — special purpose acquisition companies — are the hottest new trend in investing, and thus, as is inevitable, in litigation, as well. We’ve covered them here on our blog and will continue to do so.
So, lots of people need expert witnesses for SPAC. That means if you or your firm are taking on a SPAC case — or even thinking about it — you’ll want to start putting together your expert witness team now. Why?
As it turns out, litigation trends are not only an excellent way for lawyers to drum up new business; they are also a way to predict which types of expert witnesses will be in demand and which might need to be scooped up and hired right away!
You’re probably familiar with what happens with divorce lawyers and competing clients. Say Mr. and Mrs. Smith are going to get divorced. So, Mrs. Smith goes around town and speaks with ten different lawyers about her case, finally hiring the last one. Now, her husband goes out to look for a lawyer for himself. But Mr. Smith ends up disappointed: all ten of the lawyers that his wife talked to, even the ones she didn’t hire, are off-limits to him. (This is because it’s a conflict of interest, as the wife had already given the attorneys the details of the case.)
So Mr. Smith gets stuck with the crappy lawyer on the edge of town who hasn’t won a case in years.
Well, this could end up being you if you happen to be litigating in a field with high demand. For example, the past year has seen a flood of PFAS litigation, meaning that experts who deal with industrial and manufacturing issues, as well as medical experts who can do chemical analysis and discuss and identify symptoms, are getting hired all over the place. Remember, that you want the best experts — so if you’ve already signed on to PFAS litigation, then you’re already getting a late start on hiring your experts. There are hundreds of lawyers out there already, working the phones on behalf of their firms and clients in order to obtain the best help and advice on their cases.
That is yet another benefit of working with an agency like Orion Expert Network. Not only have we pre-screened and prepped our experts, ensuring that they have the knowledge as well as the personal qualities best suited for success at trial, we also know they’ll be available when you need them. We’ve got them locked down.
