About This Program

Damages experts play an important role in commercial litigation matters, including claims for lost profits, and provide valuable skills, expertise and experience to attorneys. An expert’s report can be a foundation for the client’s damages case and an important factor in the outcome of the litigation. An effective written expert report will augment the attorney’s legal arguments about whether the plaintiff suffered damages and will be an important basis for educating the trier of fact about the reasons for either accepting or rejecting the plaintiff’s lost profits claim. Join Chris Rosenthal and Zachary Reichenbach for an understanding of the legal requirements related to an expert report, especially for federal matters. Highlights include an overview of the report writing process; the required and suggested report sections and topical components of the written report, including detailed examples of the issues that should or could be addressed; and potential written report statements intended to either limit the expert’s exposure or preserve the expert’s ability to amend or use the report after issuance. 


  • An overview of the importance and purposes of expert reports for litigation
  • Understanding the legal requirements for expert reports in federal court
  • Drafting the expert report in an efficient process
  • Writing the expert report’s organization and content in an effective manner
  • Putting disclaimers, caveats and limiting language in the expert report to limit the expert’s exposure

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the legal requirements for an expert report and the importance of how the expert report can satisfy these legal requirements
  • Effectively write an expert report through proper organization and content that delivers a sound conclusion
  • Understand how disclaimers, caveats, and limiting language will help the expert witness limit their exposure at trial and preserve the ability to amend or supplement the report
