Bio litigation support experts encompass a wide variety of specialties including renewable fuels, renewable chemicals, feedstocks, biotechnologies, bioproducts, sustainability, synthetic biology, emerging technologies, waste management, aviation fuels, advanced biofuels, biochar, biogas, syngas, and renewable natural gas (RNG). These bio litigation support experts should be well versed in feedstocks and in technologies like anaerobic digestion, carbon capture, cellulosic ethanol, Fischer-Tropsch, gasification, pyrolysis, and torrefaction. They should be able to provide clients with expertise for projects and be available as expert witnesses in matters within the bioeconomy.
While judges make the initial determination of whether a person qualifies as an expert witness and can testify as such, the jury is normally free to decide how much weight and credibility to give the expert’s opinion. Thus, it is very important to choose an expert with not only the proper credentials but also one who can effectively translate complex, technical matters into terms that juries can easily understand. At Lee Enterprises Consulting, our experts are the top specialists in their fields. Testifying as an expert is only a small part of our experts’ professional work. We have generalized training for all our experts that we refer to attorneys as expert witnesses, making sure they understand their role in a proceeding and can check for conflicts prior to engagement. We stress the importance of Daubert qualification and the relationship they need to have with the hiring attorneys. For a full discussion on expert witnesses and hiring those in the bioeconomy, see our two articles: ”The Expert Witness in Biofuels and Biochemicals Litigation” and “Hiring An Expert Witness in The Bioeconomy”.
Renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms have experts in specialties within the bioeconomy. Although only a small part of what they do, most of these experts are available to serve as expert witnesses in bioeconomy related litigation. Generally, our experts are initially retained to examine the facts of a claim and provide counsel with direction on causation, damages, or both. Our specialists provide impartial and unbiased results. All of our experts have undergone a short in-house training as to their role in litigation, and are familiar with Daubert standards, the general concepts in the rules of evidence, and civil procedure. Prior to accepting employment, Lee Enterprises Consulting determines that the experts have the necessary specialization(s) sought and has done a complete check for any possible conflicts.
