How to Gain the Most Useful Information – and Value – From Your Jury Research
The insights and advice you receive from litigation consultants can vary widely. It’s important that the dollars you invest provide you with results you can trust. Here’s what you can do to set yourself up for a successful and valuable litigation research engagement:
- Expect More. Standard surveys aren’t enough. Charts and tabs alone won’t help. Ask your consultant for clear explanations, in narrative form, and concrete recommendations you can put into action.
- Ask Why. Make sure you understand every piece of information delivered by your litigation consultant. Ask for context and applicability so you know how you might use the information.
- Request Feedback. Once you apply the litigation research to your theme and case, ask your consultant to evaluate your new position to ensure you’re lined up with the research findings.
When evaluating competing litigation consulting proposals compare the depth and breadth of analysis proposed. Ask for references and work product, and ask questions about relevant experience in the type of matter you’re involved in.
