Edward P. Leibensperger was quoted on April 4 by the Boston Business Journal in an article regarding lawyers’ increasing use of trial consultants to gather information on jurors, examine evidence and take cases through dry runs. As a partner in McDermott's Trial Department, Mr. Leibensperger noted that trial consultants have been an important part of his work for the last ten years. "For every case going to trial I would use a trial consultant. You can really sharpen your presentation as a result of getting that feedback. It also provides a reality test for your client," he said.
