Anybody have a tried and true means to identify experts? My firm has tons of medical experts, economists, etc., but now and again we need a not so often used expert. I'm in that situation now and coming up short.

Do you have any websites, directories, subscription sites, or otherwise that you use?

And in case you happen to know one off hand, anybody know of a digital forensic expert who specializes in surveillance video systems? I need an expert to review the integrity of surveillance video./

Never used them (I don't really use experts at all) but they somehow got my email and send me information about their experts.

You can always hit up universities; a lot of times non-professional experts are more credible.

Look up articles on the topic, the author is usually a good resource. I contacted an author once, he was too expensive, and recommended a lesser experienced guy that was in budget.

Interestingly, we needed an expert for a trial with experience in non-profit corporations. I scoured LinkedIn and found a dude who was upper level at the state AG's charities bureau for like 15 years and contacted him out of the blue. He's been awesome.

I know there's also a service through westlaw

Depends on the stakes. If high enough, there are a few companies that will handle recruiting and are very good. But you need to be willing to spend at least 6 figures.

Thanks all. I've tracked down a few candidates via LinkedIn and academic articles. Got a good lead on a Computer Science Department Head at an Ivy who writes regularly on the topic.

Midlaw, what sites are you referencing? This case will justify the expense.

Post a throwaway email. What area of comp sci? I’ve used a few computer science experts who were very, very good.
