Our Story

Our passion lies in delivering efficient, high-quality service with unwavering respect for the relationship. These relationships—with our clients, colleagues, and communities—are what sets IMS apart, and they’re why we first began specializing in expert witness services for complex litigation.

In the early 1990’s, IMS co-founders Mike and Bill Wein led two successful firms (Media Management Resources and Intelligent Management Solutions) that provided high-end executive searches for companies in the telecommunications industry. They were frequently approached by major corporations looking for expert witnesses to testify on their behalf. Eventually, Mike and Bill found themselves discussing the increasing need for high-stakes expert search firms, and they created IMS ExpertServices soon after.

IMS pioneered the executive-recruiting approach to align clients working in complex commercial litigation with the very best subject matter experts across any industry.

Our Values

IMS was founded upon many of these core values, and they continue to guide our company forward as we expand to meet the needs of our trusted clients and colleagues. We believe our people are our greatest asset and that diverse points of view lead to a stronger and more creative organization. In 2019, IMS launched a comprehensive, evidence-based Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) program across all offices—a program which continues to grow.

In addition to the legal community, IMS is proud to be a part of many local communities. The “Mike Wein Good Deed Day” was created to honor our co-founder by partnering with philanthropic organizations and engaging our team in ongoing projects to advance their mission. Each month, IMS donates to a variety of charities selected by our employees in honor of their work anniversaries.
