A hardware expert witness could be engaged to provide expert witness services for intellectual property matters, such as a patent infringement litigation in federal court or a trade secret dispute. A forensic expert has experience reverse engineering components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A hardware expert could also be called in on breach of contract disputes to consult on technical issues, which could require computer forensic engineering work. A hardware expert witness might also provide testimony in a product liability case involving the failure analysis of a consumer electronics device.

Litigation support by a hardware expert witness could include reverse engineering, an expert report, an expert opinion, patent invalidity arguments, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a testifying expert with previous experience.
