   The New York Law Journal announced the winners today for its annual ‘Best Of 2020’ reader favorites awards, and named IMS Consulting & Expert Services as Top Three award recipient in the category of Best Trial Presentation/’Hot Seat’ Consulting.

The New York Law Journal was founded in 1888 to deliver news and discussion relevant to the New York legal community. The annual ‘Best Of’ awards are designed to help The Journal’s readers identify and recognize the most trusted and valued practitioners and service providers across several important categories of legal brands, firms, products, and solutions.

"It’s an honor to be trusted by New York’s top litigators and firms,” remarked James Crane, Chief Revenue Officer of IMS. “We take pride in delivering the best-aligned expertise, tools, and context to help our New York clients. It means a lot that our clients rely on us to help them navigate the pressing issues of our industry and their practices. In these pandemic-affected times, it is especially meaningful that New York’s litigation community recognizes our trial presentation consulting as “best.” Our clients have faced increasing complexities with restricted and remote environments due to COVID-19, and it has been our privilege to help them meet the challenges of in-court and virtualized presentations.”

With deep experience rooted in more than 20,000 cases and well over 1,000 trials, IMS has been delivering expert witness and trial consulting services to top litigators in areas including expert witness recruitment and management, trial graphics, trial presentation, jury research, and trial strategy. As the COVID-19 pandemic has brought disruption across the courts and the practices of the firm’s clientele, the firm has become a leader in helping clients adapt to remote court events and trial presentation, remote jury research, and ensure the context of COVID-19 is fully considered as they advance their cases.

IMS has been recognized in recent years with awards from leading publications throughout the legal industry, including recognition by The National Law Journal in six categories of its ‘Best Of 2020’ awards, by Corporate Counsel Magazine in eight categories of its ‘Best Of 2019’ awards, and by The National Law Review in its two most recent years of the prestigious ‘Go-To Thought Leader’ awards.

The methodology for selection of The New York Law Journal ‘Best Of 2020’ awards includes a rigorous nominations process for all award categories and a period of voting by The Journal’s readers and stakeholders throughout the region’s legal community. Final selection of the winners is made through analysis and winner rankings conducted by The New York Law Journal.

The New York Law Journal ‘Best Of 2020’ award winners and rankings across dozens of categories are published in The Journal’s current edition. The edition also features a thought leadership article from IMS Consulting & Expert Services, with discussion on the implications of COVID-19 for the commercial litigation community and how trial teams can best prepare for advancing their cases amid the uncertainty of remote court events and safety restrictions.
