12:00      Using Experts in Fiduciary Litigation

Kimberly J. "Kim" Kirk, Johnston Allison & Hord PA, Charlotte

When is expert discovery useful and admissible? How do the 2018 revisions to Rule 26 of the North Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure affect expert discovery? What factors should you consider when deciding whether to have your expert prepare a report? This session dives into areas and uses of experts in fiduciary litigation and considerations when going into expert depositions, including issues arising from subpoenas and objections thereto. Review the scope of work product protection and how and when documents must be produced, explore cost-shifting options, and identify venue distinctions via a comparison of expert discovery protocol in federal court, North Carolina Superior Court, and proceedings before the Clerk of Court.

Description

The rules governing expert discovery are less than clear, and from subpoena service issues to work product scope, potential pitfalls are prevalent.

This CLE addresses both technical areas of expert discovery, as well as appropriate uses of experts in the fiduciary litigation context.
