Drilling Expert Witnesses
What is a drilling expert witness?
Drilling expert witnesses typically have a background as a professional engineer with extensive experience in petroleum engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, or as a completions engineer. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a subject matter expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
What types of cases require a drilling expert witness?
Legal cases involving drilling issues could involve intellectual property, such as a patent infringement case or a trade secrets dispute. A subject matter expert in drilling might also provide expert testimony in a product liability case or personal injury case.
What litigation support work might a drilling expert witness be expected to perform?
Litigation support services could include failure analyses, research and authoring expert reports, patent invalidity and validity arguments, depositions, providing expert opinion, and expert testimony at a trial. A drilling engineer or petroleum engineer could also be called upon to provide pre-litigation consulting work.
