The plaintiff and defense legal teams currently spend a significant amount of professional hours dealing with talent management – from recruiting of the doctors, to coordinating with their clinical practice schedules, to other logistics. All these activities can take away focus from the actual lawyering. A lawyer’s most precious commodity is their time. Talent management is very time-consuming and unlikely the reason why an attorney went to law school.
CMEF (Court Martial Expert Finder) was started by a physician who has enjoyed serving as an expert witness in military court-martials, who observed a problem that exists in the current system regarding expert talent sourcing and management. There exist inefficiencies with scheduling which are disruptive to the attorneys, to the physicians, and even to patient care. Talent management is an art and a science and best left to professional case managers who routinely work with the physicians and other talent and are experienced with assisting them for their expert cases.
Within a day to a week from your initial call with our physician intake specialist, CMEF will proffer to you one or several CVs for experts who are a perfect fit expert for your court-martial. Our experienced case managers will help coordinate the consultation from start to end, facilitating communication, coordinating each conference, arranging convenient times for the consultations, all while ensuring that there are no disruptions to patient care. CMEF will help coordinate all the logistics and troubleshoot the intricate complexities that are inherent to physician schedules.
This process also results in more highly qualified experts. CMEF manages hundreds of physician talent in all specialties who trained at top-tier institutions and are best-kept-secrets in their field. They cannot be found on publicly available expert sites as those lists are often replete with experts who paid for their marketing and have a tendency to be “pay for opinion” and “what do you want me to say” types. Honesty in consulting is paramount and CMEF believes that our soldiers deserve nothing less than the best experts.
