Question: Should A Securities Expert Witness Attend The Entire Hearing?
Answer: Yes, always! Experts are normally allowed to remain along with the parties in the arbitration forums. This is so the expert can gauge the credibility of the witnesses as well as to the reaction of the arbitrators to their testimony. Then if the arbitrator's ask questions of the witnesses, it is critical for the expert to hear the answers and work these very points into his or her own testimony.
Furthermore, only when the expert can hear, first hand, how his client handles questions under cross examination, can the expert refine and clarify his position for later testimony.
