Expert Witnesses

that teach and persuade

We find, vet, and manage the best expert witnesses to teach the complicated aspects of your case with clarity and integrity.


The best expert witnesses are much more than their expertise, they are great teachers. Like all great teachers, they love their subject, they convey that love with passion and personal integrity, and they know that teaching is about engaging jurors and giving them the tools to confidently examine a complex issue in a way that is fair and makes sense.

Finding experts who are great teachers and then helping them to be their very best at trial is a difficult job. IMS is the only group with three decades of successfully doing both.

Through over XXXX successful placements, IMS earned its reputation for delivering the best experts to the world’s most influential attorneys and law firms for any type of complex dispute. Whether you need an expert for antitrust, securities, or intellectual property litigation, an ITC investigation, or a patent portfolio review, we know the subject matter authorities and networks across every industry and discipline.


As pioneers of the industry, we have developed proprietary methods to find the best experts and deliver the best service to our clients. We find experts who advise, consult, and testify on complex matters in any industry and every discipline. We stay engaged and are available to clients from start to finish.
