Consumer Electronics Expert Witnesses
Consumer electronics expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree in electrical engineering or electronic engineering, along with extensive experience. An expert witness should not only have substantive technical expertise, but also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to a judge and jury. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, law firms may require previous expert testimony experience. The chosen expert witness could be a member of an industry organization such as IEEE or the Consumer Technology Association (CTA).
Consumer electronics is loosely defined as electronic products intended for everyday personal use and primarily include devices used for entertainment, communications and recreation. A consumer electronics expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters such as a patent infringement litigation or a trade secret dispute. Product liability and personal injury cases could also utilize the support of a consumer electronics expert witness. In a litigation scenario, a technical expert can expect courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as a prior art search, failure analysis, expert report preparation, expert opinion, forensic engineering, and related consulting activities. A law firm may also request an electrical engineer for pre-litigation expert consultant work.
