Privilege and Ethics in Working With Your Expert (American Bar Association)
Interactions between lawyers and expert witnesses are bound to pose ethical questions. These may range from lawyers’ and experts’ ethical obligations in connection with selection and engagement of an expert, to witness preparation, ex parte contacts, discovery of expert materials, fee arrangements, conflicts, rules of conduct, and even reasons to sanction or disqualify experts or exclude their evidence. Tiago Duarte-Silva will be moderating an American Bar Association Roundtable on “Privilege and Ethics in Working With Your Expert,” where the panelists will discuss these and other questions faced by both lawyers and experts.
