An agricultural technology expert witness typically has extensive experience in agricultural engineering, agricultural economics, agricultural equipment, agricultural safety, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and/or regulatory compliance. Cahn Litigation Services has been approached by numerous clients to locate expert witnesses, on behalf of either the plaintiff or defendant, that can support agritech matters.
Agricultural technology encompasses products, services and applications that use innovative technologies such as robots, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial images, and GPS technology to improve yield, efficiency, safety, and profitability. A farmer using precision agriculture will use less land, water, fertilizer, herbicides and insecticides, while increasing crop production.
Examples of agritech include:
Matters requiring agricultural technology expert witness services can involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, software copyright, or trade secret disputes. A forensic expert can analyze products or methodologies to determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft. An expert in agritech could also be called in on breach of contract disputes, business valuation, economic damage, fraud and misrepresentation, and supply chain issues.
Litigation support by an agricultural technology expert witness could include an expert report, expert opinion, forensic investigation, deposition testimony, and expert testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an agriculture expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek an agricultural industry expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
