Get more business. Expert witness recruitment firms can be a useful way to get more business, placing thousands of experts every year. But they come with challenges, as well as benefits, that every expert should be aware of. Come for a frank, useful discussion about the good, the bad, and the manageable for getting the most from recruiting firms, from an industry expert.
Moderator: John Levitske, Senior Managing Director, Litigation & Disputes, Ankura
Toby Edwards is a Senior Recruiter at IMS Expert Services. He has been recruiting and placing experts since 2003, when he took a part-time gig at Round Table Group (RTG) to cover summer expenses during graduate school. His first case was to find the world’s foremost authority of Jewish gravestone carving for a dispute on a stylized menorah engraving, and he never looked back. Toby held a variety of positions at RTG, and worked up to VP of Operations in 2007. After Thomson Reuters Expert Witness Services (TREWS) acquired RTG, Toby stayed on as Manager of Expert Services, providing professional development resources for the 40,000 members, managing the customer service team, as well as a variety of expert communications including a quarterly newsletter, training videos, expert satisfaction surveys, and a yearly national survey of expert witnesses.
Prior to 2003, he served as an instructor at the University of California's Washington DC Center, teaching advanced research design and methodologies, political science, and public policy.
Toby has been a vocal supporter of FEWA for many years, and has had the privilege of working with them on several occasions on national surveys, presentations at chapter meetings, and other areas.
