Economist Expert Witness

Economist expert witness candidates usually have experience in forensic accounting, economic damages, business valuation, tax law, financial services, and/or are certified public accountants (CPA) or certified fraud examiners. An economics expert witness should not only have the appropriate substantive expertise but should also possess the ability to describe complex economic matters and evidence to a judge and jury. In a prominent case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may need an economic expert or damages expert with prior expert testimony experience. The chosen expert could be a member of an industry organization such as the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the American Economic Association (AEA), or the National Association of Forensic Accountants (NAFA).

Microeconomics assesses fundamental factors in the economy (such as households, companies, buyers, and sellers), while macroeconomics studies the economy as a system (such as employment, capital, land, the cost of living, and economic growth). Forensic economics applies economic theories and methods to pecuniary damages matters. A forensic economic expert can be involved to support economic matters including personal and commercial litigation, economic damage estimations, fraud, economic loss because of personal injury, antitrust conflicts, and other business, property, and asset valuation.
