Lawyers deal with experts all the time. They give depositions in cases, testify at trial, and generally help to support whatever burden of proof we need to meet in a particular case. Someone once described them as anyone who lives and works more than 100 miles away from the matter in litigation. Or, someone who knows more about a topic than anyone else in the courtroom. Many lawyers, in prepping for trial, become experts themselves. But, in a firm meeting, the number one task is to learn the buzz words, and to appear knowledgeable. Actual knowledge is often secondary. I prefer having only myself to impress. No deception necessary. Do you have to posture to keep your job? Maybe you are working for the wrong employer. Go solo.
