An Expert Witness is someone who through his experience, education, training or profession can be considered and treated as an expert in his field of interest and as such, they can legally present their opinions over the subject at hand in a court of law. An Expert Witness is required in a number or legal issues ranging from Personal Injury lawsuits to Financial Frauds or other legal disputes.
An important legal section where there is a constant need of Expert Witnesses is the financial prosecution section. And no financial deal is complete without an integral part played by a Bank. This is where Banking Expert Witnesses come in. These professionals have spent a big chunk of their professional careers associated with the Banking sector in differing capacities, either as an employee or as a consultant etc. As such they have garnered a lot of experience into the nooks and crannies of how the banks operate.
Making jurors, judges and everyone present in the court room to understand complex financial knowledge can be a problem. This is where video production comes into play. It can become a lot easier for an expert witness to present complex data and insight of financial issues using this technology. The art of winning a case lies in producing videos and presentations to let the participants understand your point in a step by step manner.
Video Productions and Depositions are common in such high profile cases where it is necessary to record testimonies of expert witnesses and other actors to preserve it in case of premature death. Such video productions are usually undertaken in presence of the presiding judge and attorneys of both the defendant and the plaintiff to ensure transparency. The availability of both sides’ attorneys at video productions ensures that cross-examination and questioning of witnesses can take place during the video production.
Banking expert witness testimony and lending experience brings an “insiders” understanding of how commercial banks operate. Whether it is bank-lending regulations, bank lending practices, or lender liability issues ranging from loan commitments to loan defaults or loan restructure / workout issues to interest rates and bankruptcy, this knowledge will help to maximize legal results for the client.
Video Productions and Depositions of Banking Expert Witnesses can be a useful tool in securing the success of a trial. They are extensively used in White Collar Criminal cases where the expertise of Banking Expert Witnesses can play an integral role in helping the court understand how a certain act took place and how it affected other institutions and/or individuals.
