ThemeVision LLC - Trial Consultants


   Representative Experience

ThemeVision’s trial consultants have worked with life and health insurance companies and their counsel in litigation involving intellectual property as well as commercial and class action claims. Over time, we have come to understand many of the challenges faced by the life and health insurance industries both in the courtroom and in the marketplace. ThemeVision’s trial consultants and jury consultants strive to understand our clients’ businesses and services so that we can provide sophisticated, but practical, litigation consulting solutions.

Jury Trial: Insurance Coverage Dispute- Tennessee
Provided extensive consulting to the plaintiff in an insurance coverage case in Davidson County, Tennessee. A series of focus group and mock trial studies were conducted to test the strength of the plaintiff and defense evidence under differing case scenarios that could result from rulings on pretrial motions. In addition to jury research, we assisted with the development of case themes, a juror profile, jury selection, and demonstrative exhibits. Result: $204 million verdict.
Age Discrimination Suit- Indiana
Conducted a research project for the defendant in an age discrimination case in the Northern District of Indiana. The case involved an insurance company executive who was fired as part of the company downsizing. The plaintiff was seeking back pay, front pay, and liquidated damages. A settlement favorable to our client was reached just before the scheduled jury trial.
Business Methods Patent: Jury Trial- Iowa
Assisted the plaintiff, a life insurance company, with a jury trial in federal court in Iowa. The case involved a business methods patent infringement dispute. We conducted ThemeTesting® studies prior to trial, assisted with jury selection, and prepared the demonstrative exhibits used throughout trial. Result: $13.1 million jury verdict in favor of our client.
RICO Jury Trial - New Jersey
Developed demonstrative exhibits for the defense of RICO, ERISA, and fraud claims in a jury trial in federal court in New Jersey. The case involved an allegation that the defendant had misrepresented the effect of an insurance product. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the defense on all counts.
Class Action (Annuities)- Indiana
Conducted mock class certification hearings on behalf of the defendant in a putative class action involving the sale of annuities. The mock hearings were conducted with panels of retired, former, and senior-status state court judges and involved the presentation of briefing, oral argument, evidence, and testimony for the judges’ review, including witness testimony presented by video. The study allowed the trial team to determine which aspects of a complex class certification dispute were most important and persuasive to representative panels of judges from the relevant jurisdiction. The study also allowed the trial team and the client to better assess the risks of a class certification hearing.  Result: The case settled favorably for the defense prior to the class certification hearing.
