Generator expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and background in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and/or automotive engineering. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a professional with prior expert witness experience.
A generator converts mechanical energy into electrical power. Examples of mechanical energy used to generate electricity include steam turbines, gas turbine, water turbines, internal combustion engines, and wind turbine technology.
Matters requiring generators expert witness service often involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review in the PTAB, or trade secret disputes. Forensic engineering of components can prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A generator specialist might also provide expert testimony in a torts matter like personal injury or a product liability case involving failure analysis. Litigation support could include analysis, reverse engineering, accident reconstruction, expert opinion, deposition, expert reports, arbitration, and expert witness testimony at a trial.
Representing the plaintiff or defendant, Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon by law firm clients to locate expert witnesses to support generator matters. Examples of cases for which Cahn Litigation Services has performed expert searches have involved a diesel generator, electrical power system, solar power generation, and power plants. Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn a search around quickly and provide expert witnesses with the right balance of expertise and testimony for the job at hand.
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.
The below expert witness bios represent a small fraction of those Generators experts known by Cahn Litigation Services. These bios are provided to give attorneys a sense of the Generators landscape.
