A fiber optics expert witness typically has an advanced degree and extensive experience and expertise in optical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, and/or in the telecommunications industry. The chosen expert could be a member of an industry organization such as the Optical Society (OSA), the Fiber Optic Association, and/or IEEE. A fiber optics expert witness should of course have a deep understanding of the technology, but also of the fiber optic market, market growth, market size, and competitive landscape.
A fiber optics expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent infringement litigation or trade secret dispute. Litigation support services could include courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as depositions, expert testimony, an expert report, prior art search, lab analysis, microscopy, claim charts, and related consulting activities. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness experience is often a requirement. A fiber optics expert witness needs to not only have technical expertise, but should also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, including a judge and jury. In addition, clients may seek a fiber optic subject matter expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
