Expert Hot-tubbing: How Experts Can “Soak Up” the Experience to Their Advantage—A Case Study

Tuesday, December 14, 2021 2:00 p.m. - 3:40 p.m. ET

The strategy of expert hot-tubbing has been used in a mediation, arbitration, and pre-trial settings to assist counsel and the trier of fact in exploring and understanding complex expert analysis and opinions. This course will walk through a case study of an arbitration where the experts testified during a hot-tubbing session with the ability to openly question each other and discuss complex accounting issues, assumptions, and opinions to better-educate both Counsel and the Triers of Fact – in this case, an arbitration panel of attorneys and a judge. In this session, participants will:

  • Identify different expert hot-tubbing strategies
  • Evaluate both the advantages and risks of expert hot-tubbing
  • Identify tips on the do’s and don’ts during expert hot-tubbing
