IMS Expert Services Forms Financial Crisis Expert Practice Group

Pensacola, FL (PRWEB) November 10, 2008

IMS ExpertServices, the global leader in expert witness search services, announced today the formation of a Financial Crisis Expert Practice Group. IMS assembled the team to provide experts needed during fallout from the current economic crisis.

“IMS ExpertServices has years of experience locating, vetting and placing financial industry experts,” said President Bill Wein. “Since the start of the year we’ve been monitoring movement in the markets. We’ve identified five areas of concentration where we anticipate a strong demand for best of class experts for the financial services sector: mortgage-backed securities, particularly securitization of subprime mortgage loans; other undersecured asset-backed securities, particularly resulting from credit card securitization; interest rate swaps and other derivatives; municipal bonds; and executive compensation matters. Our Financial Crisis Expert Practice Group stands ready to assist our clients with these and other financial sector issues.”

IMS provides expert witnesses for attorneys at over 90 of the AmLaw 100 law firms, as well as top notch regional boutique firms. Though some clients may be accustomed to thinking of IMS as the best resource for technical experts for patent infringement litigation, in fact IMS has deep experience with the financial services sector. IMS experts have worked on some of the largest bankruptcies in the past several years including WorldCom, Enron, Iridium and other significant cases in the courts.

While IMS is skilled in these business segments, so are its experts. “We’ve identified individuals of significant expertise prepared to opine on matters arising from credit and finance litigation,” said Mike Wein, IMS’s CEO. “First class experts are always a finite resource. Our Financial Crisis Expert Practice Group is designed to ensure our clients have the expert witness resources they need when they face challenges arising from the economic situation.”
