Expert Witness Consulting Services in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 19, 2014

The Expert Witness Consulting Services industry recovered strongly from the recession over the past five years. Despite strong growth prior to the economic downturn from robust corporate and legal activity, industry demand and revenue fell during the recession. A decline in per capita disposable income and corporate profit caused businesses and customers to have fewer funds available for expert witness consulting services; consequently, the industry’s growth slowed in 2009. Since 2010, industry demand and revenue have increased as corporate profit and per capita disposable income strengthened as well. Overall, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to increase at annualized rate in the five years to 2014, as the industry recover from recession lows. Revenue is estimated to increase due to greater demand from law firms and government organizations.

According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst David Yang, “Competition has increased throughout the past five years, which has pressured revenue growth and industry profit.” Although firms in the industry compete against one another on the basis of price, quality of service, expertise, communication skills and reputation, the industry as a whole faces significant external competition as well. In particular, integrated management consulting firms and large accounting firms that provide comprehensive strategy, economic and management consulting services pose as competition to expert witness consulting services. External competition also comes from firms that have a general counsel or in-house legal team with expert witnesses. Nevertheless, industry profitability is expected to increase in the five years to 2014, due to the recovery from recession lows.

During the five years to 2019, IBISWorld projects industry revenue to increase at an average annually. “Expert witness consultants will benefit largely from strengthened demand from law firms, higher corporate profit, a larger number of civil cases and greater per capita disposable income,” says Yang. For instance, corporate profit is expected to grow at an average annual rate in the five years to 2019. With this, potential customers will have more money available for the industry’s high-cost services. In the next five years, companies are expected to provide more value-added services and employ workers with specialized backgrounds, and as a result, firms will be able to offer more services to clients and compete more effectively in the industry.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 30, 2014

Kevin Connell, chairman of, will demonstrate the advanced Internet research and investigative skills that are essential for all loss prevention professionals, especially for those that investigate fraud and theft, during the National Retail Federation Loss Prevention Conference and Expo, June 12 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Having advanced Internet research and investigative skills are an essential requirement at all levels of loss prevention. Many valuable sources of Intel are unknown and untapped by loss prevention professionals who simply “don’t know what they don’t know.”

Connell will reveal today’s most current, comprehensive and cutting-edge Internet research techniques. Being unfamiliar with these techniques can result in many valuable sources of intelligence going unknown and untapped. The fact is, acquiring useful and relevant Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) requires much more than just the ability to surf the Web.

“Finding the right information for retailers isn’t simply a matter of entering a magical keyword or phrase into Google and abracadabra, you found exactly what you needed,” Connell said. “Most people are searching the Web like they did five or ten years ago, they simply don’t know what they don’t know about online searching. I’ll show attendees how to go off the beaten path and develop a new range of powerful skill sets. My goal is to make attendees more effective and efficient online.”

Attendees will learn how to:

    Conduct due diligence using the Internet
    Find more information in less time when online
    Create advanced searches on the Web
    Research public record sources
    Analyze information and distinguish between the useful and useless

Attendees will leave with:

    Renewed confidence in their Internet search know-how
    The ability to find more useful and relevant information in less time
    An advanced ability to conduct Web searches that are legal and compliant

This how-to presentation will explain the step-by-step procedures required in conducting searches. Ultimately, the ability to find deep and hidden websites that return key intelligence while being in compliance with the law and privacy consideration is a necessary skill for Loss Prevention professionals.

As an added bonus, Connell will be co-presenting with Kereakos Zuras, President of Convenience Marketing and Owner of Mid-Atlantic Franchises (BP, Sunoco, and Subway) and former Advisor to George W. Bush. Zuras will be providing personal insights from the day-to-day retail business aspect, recounting many incidents of fraud and theft he himself has dealt with over the years. Zuras speaks across the country before various industries and is featured regularly on Fox News Channel, Fox and Friends, Fox News HQ and Fox News Live, providing powerful unique insight on business, political and government related issues.

Registration is open to all. Full Conference registration includes all educational sessions, networking events and access to the Expo Hall. A Free Expo Pass is also available to retailers and law enforcement professionals.
