Current display technologies include Electroluminescent (ELD) display ; Liquid crystal display (LCD); Light-emitting diode (LED) backlit LCD; Thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD; Light-emitting diode (LED) display; OLED display; AMOLED display; Plasma (PDP) display; and Quantum dot (QLED) display. Each is a specialized technology area, and Cahn Litigation is frequently called upon by attorney clients, representing the plaintiff or defendant, to locate expert witnesses that can support various display technology related matters, and present sufficient facts and evidence to support a case.
Often, matters requiring display technology expert witness services involve intellectual property, including patent infringement litigation, inter partes review or trade secret disputes. A forensic expert can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft.
Litigation support by a display expert witness could include reverse engineering, expert reports, expert opinion, deposition testimony, and expert testimony at a trial 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. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise, an engineering expert witness must possess the ability to explain technology and scientific evidence to lay people, such as a typical juror. In addition, clients may seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
Please Note: All Cahn Litigation expert witness searches are customized to attorneys' precise specifications and preferences. Attorneys are encouraged to discuss search parameters with a Cahn search specialist.
