I hope you are right about the ship.
Being an "expert", however, likely does not prevent the "I am clueless" defense.
When that stops working, there is always the "on advice from counsel, I decline to answer" defense.
Unfortunately in the latter case they cannot then selectively answer some questions, but must take the fifth on ALL questions, which is always entertaining. (Yeah.. I must be sick. I like watching such hearings. :))
