Intellectual property expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in intellectual property law or economic damages. Depending on the specifics of the case, specialists such as a software design expert, mechanical engineering expert, or electrical engineering expert may be called upon to support a case. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may require a testifying expert with prior experience. An expert witness must be able to explain technology and complex situations to a judge and jury, as well as be able to withstand the scrutiny of a cross-examination.
