The Value of Experts and Retainer Forms

Legal teams have a vested interest in securing the best expert analysis and testimony that they possible can. In many instances, this means hiring a professional from a given field to provide valuable support and resources that will help the legal team to construct their best possible case. Typically, both parties will sign a retainer form which states that the expert agrees to provide their services for a given length of time. These forms will also typically feature clauses that state that the expert will not provide any their services to anyone else who might have interests that conflict with those of the contracting legal team. These forms are a way of ensuring that the client, lawyers, and expert get the most out of their agreement and that it cannot be tampered with or strayed from without further agreement.

The value that the assistance of credible experts provides in legal matters cannot be understated. As per standard court proceedings, both sides will have access to the same pool of evidence and facts. Accordingly, which side emerges as the victor from the proceedings will be largely dependent on the respective legal teams abilities to present the information in the light that best matches their clients' interests. By having the best and most credible experts on their side, lawyers stand to make their case substantially stronger and to establish favor with the jury. Reputable experts can provide testimony that will reshape the way that the court sees certain facts or call into question assertions that opposing side has made. They can also provide essential services in the formulation of case strategy and in the reviewing of evidence. Put simply, it is a fact that the legal team that can assemble the best collection of expert witnesses to bolster their side has a tremendous advantage. If you have pending legal matters, you and your legal counsel would be well advised to use a retainer form to contract the services of a top-notch expert.
