What Makes a Great Expert Witness?
Posted by Gordon Smith

The W$J offers Berkeley economist David Teece as a model:

Prof. Teece's economic work was so panoramic that he could be plugged into almost any industry dispute and presented as knowledgeable. He didn't fluster under cross-examination. And his New Zealand accent worked nicely on the witness stand; it made him sound erudite without being pompous.

Of his consulting firm, LECG, Inc., Teece stated, "I won't get many thank-you notes for this, but we've given economists the chance to earn investment bankers' incomes. If you're successful with us, it isn't hard to make half a million dollars a year."

Note to self: visit New Zealand and develop accent. (Oh ... and get PhD in economics.)
