The "forensic expert," the third type of consultant, is retained to be an advocate of the client. This expert must be made aware of the issues of prime concern to the client, who typically is management in the legal position of defendant in a lawsuit. It is also conceivable for the forensic expert to be retained by plaintiffs in a lawsuit, which requires advocacy of the position argued by employees against management.

Nevertheless, forensic experts who wish to develop a reputation as not being "hired guns" for sale to the highest bidder know that they should pick and choose their cases carefully.

The human resource personal must understand what each of the position lintel so that when they are interviewing a person for these jobs they know that the person they are talking to is the right fit for the job. Since this job requires a lot of private and person information to be read and used it is important that a human resource personal would understand this job as they are required to read understand what they are hiring a person for and that all information is keep private from others even in the firm. All that is being discussed in this job it is important on both sides of the fence that the human resource person understand their job and that the job that they are interviewing and assigning to a new or even a person moving up in the company.
