Interactive voice response expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and expertise in electrical engineering, software engineering, telecommunications, voice recognition, and have specialized knowledge in voice response technology. On behalf of either a plaintiff or defendant, law firm clients call on Cahn Litigation Services to locate expert witnesses to support voice and speech technology matters, including interactive voice response litigation. An interactive voice response expert witness should have deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the market – market share, market size, market growth and competitive landscape. An interactive voice response system expert witness needs substantive expertise as well as possess the ability to explain expert evidence to a juror and judge.
Among other applications, IVR systems are used for mobile purchases, banking payments, services, retail orders, utilities, travel information and weather conditions. Often, matters requiring voice command expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation or a trade secret dispute in a district or federal court, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). Litigation support by an interactive voice response expert witness could include analysis, deposition testimony, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert witness testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an expert with prior expert testimony experience. Whether the case involves speech recognition, voice identification, voice commands, or a voice assistant, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn an expert witness search around quickly and provide the right balance of expertise and testimony to support each unique project.
