Description

The IMechE Texas branch will be hosting an evening talk on the role of expert witnesses in lawsuits, arbitrations or other formal legal proceedings, particularly in technical engineering cases where expert testimony is critical.  The presentation will be given by a prominent attorney who has tried such cases for many years, and will focus on how expert testimony of the opposing party is analyzed, reviewed and, where appropriate, critiqued, through cross examination or otherwise.

Questions and open discussion will be encouraged and light refreshments will be served.  For more information, please see the attached flyer.

The talk will be held at the offices of Technip-Genesis, starting at 6:30PM on November 20th 2013.

Please follow signs to visitor parking at Kirkwood Road entrance, Technip Energy Tower 1.  The presentation will be held on the ground floor of the building, and will be signposted inside the building.  Please note, attendees should plan to arrive after 6pm to avoid exiting traffic, with a finish time planned around 8PM.

Benjamin Escobar is a Partner in the law firm of Beirne, Maynard & Parsons, LLP, where his practice focuses on the litigation and trial of personal injury, energy and chemical, commercial and construction disputes involving technical issues.
