A data center expert witness typically has extensive experience and is a subject matter expert in computer science, software engineering, mechanical engineering, computer forensics, electrical engineering and/or information technology. Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon by law firm clients to locate experts that can support data center matters.
A data center is a centralized location where computing and networking equipment is housed. A data center collects, processes, and allows access to large amounts of data. A data center will typically provide data storage, backup and recovery, data management and networking.
Often, matters requiring data center expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, or trade secrets disputes. A forensic expert can analyze devices and software to determine if there is evidence to reveal infringement or theft. A data center expert could also be called in on breach of contract disputes, to consult on technical or implementation issues, which could require forensic analysis work.
Litigation support by a data center expert could include hardware or software analysis, prior art search, deposition, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness experience. A data center expert witness needs to not only have technical expertise but should also possess the ability to explain technology to lay people (jury and judge). In addition, clients may seek a data center industry expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
