Finding a Furniture Design Defect Expert Witness

A Law Firm Needed an Expert for a Personal Injury Case Quickly.


A law firm sought an expert witness for a personal injury case who could speak to design defects in manufactured furniture and how furniture is packaged for shipping. The expert would also need to travel to evaluate the furniture on-site.

The GLG Approach

The GLG Law team determined the right expert would need a background in design defects, specifically in manufactured products, to fully understand how a package should be designed to prevent injury.

Drawing from GLG’s network of approximately 1 million subject matter experts, the team sent three candidates to the client and set up complimentary video screening calls within two business days.


The client retained a retired professor of furniture design with 35 years of experience as their expert witness. The expert traveled to the client’s site to evaluate and inspect the furniture in-person.
