I would like to receive more information from DOAR.

We call them striped unicorns — that ideal expert for a given case, a respected, unimpeachable authority with exceptional communication skills and an unflappable demeanor. It can be difficult to differentiate the ideal from the not-quite-right when legal teams are under the gun to find an expert, but there is a methodology for ensuring their suitability and minimizing potential surprises.

In a new white paper, DOAR’s Chad Lackey, Ph.D. and Emily Stein, J.D. provide practical guidance on how to assess an expert’s suitability and minimize potential surprises.
