Exercising Professional Responsibility – Surviving the Daubert Trilogy and other Lures 

A testifying expert’s role in litigation is to educate the trier of fact on complex technical issues.  Even though we may be hired by one side or the other, advocating a position favorable to our client could lead to a Daubert failure or malpractice lawsuit.  Having served as both litigator and expert witness, Neil Posner will discuss exercising professional responsibility by complying with the rules of evidence and avoiding the lures of advocacy and legal opinion. 


Neil Posner successfully counsels his clients on the complexities of buying and maintaining insurance, and using insurance as part of an overall risk-management program.  As the Chair of the firm Much Shelist's Policyholders' Insurance Coverage group, Neil focuses on insurance recovery and dispute resolution, risk management, loss prevention and cost containment.  Neil helps policyholders resolve all types of insurance coverage disputes, through negotiation, litigation and other forms of dispute resolution, including mediation, arbitration and settlement.  His clients include public and private companies, organizations, boards of directors, individual officers and other policyholders.

Neil practices extensively in the area of lawyer’s professional liability, which includes counseling lawyers and law firms on professional responsibility and ethics matters. He has served as an expert witness in this area, and speaks and writes extensively on the subject.
