The Expert Institute – Why Work For Us?

The legal industry has changed - and technology has provided the catalyst for this evolution. Lawyers are adopting new ways of thinking and redefining the most fundamental aspects of how they practice law.

The Expert Institute was founded in recognition of this paradigm shift, with the objective of developing a smarter way for attorneys to identify, verify, and retain the best expert witnesses.

Every litigator - from AmLaw 100 partners to solo practitioners - relied on outdated and inconsistent methods for finding expert witnesses. We were determined to disrupt this unreliable methodology.

We deconstructed the process of finding experts, and built a data driven platform that could adapt to the demands of any case. We combined that technology with a team of skilled legal researchers and developed a system that delivers a perfect match, every time.

Having partnered with over 4,000 firms, both globally and in all 50 states, we’ve gained unparalleled insights across all aspects of expert witness recruiting.

Our mission is simple - to help our clients be better advocates by providing them with access to the best expertise.


Working with the world’s foremost experts demands the best recruiting and research talent. We’ve cultivated smart, talented researchers by nurturing a culture of discovery, encouraging questions that get the right answers, and driving results. Clients at every level trust our 10 on-staff Medical Doctors and team of Multidisciplinary Researchers to engage them with the right expert. Our proprietary technology serves as tool researchers can use to facilitate an efficient search process. 


Our Sales and Account Management team provides comprehensive support on every engagement. They are active participants in every stage of the process, coordinating the efforts of multiple teams to make a perfect connection every time.


Our Tech and Marketing team is a collection of born innovators who see solutions as a way of life. Drawn from across the country and around the world, they work every day to improve our systems and deliver better solutions for our clients. They thrive on progress, and have created some of the most powerful technology in the legal industry.

    I worked at The Expert Institute part-time (Less than a year)


    Interning at TEI over the summer was a wonderful way to work with a rapidly expanding company with diverse learning opportunities and intelligent co-workers. Their internship hours were flexible and well compensated.


    As an intern who needed a flexible schedule, there weren't any cons to the working environment at TEI.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Expert Institute (New York, NY) in February 2018.


    I applied to The Expert Institute in January 2018 and was contacted within 7 days to set up a phone screen. The phone screen was with one of the HR reps and lasted about 30 minutes. They went over the job, asked me about my background and why I applied, and asked me if I can provide them with a brief summary of what TEI does as a company. After, I was invited to take a personality and critical thinking skills assessment and after 7 days, was invited in for an in-person interview which consisted of interviewing with 3 people (different levels of management) and then a 1-hour case study assessment. The interview and case study took about 2.5 hours. I was contacted after about 7 days and was invited for a Shadow Day which consisted of shadowing 3 different either Research Analyst or Research Associates. The Shadow Day lasted about 1.5 hours. I was then contacted after 3 days and was offered the Research Analyst position at TEI.
