An internet protocol expert witness typically has an advanced degree and extensive experience in computer science, software engineering, cybersecurity, computer security, information security, computer networks, and/or internet applications. On behalf of the plaintiff or defendant, Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon by law firm clients to locate expert witnesses that can support software and internet matters, including cases involving internet protocol issues.
An internet protocol expert witness could be engaged to provide expert witness service for intellectual property matters, such as a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secret dispute. It could be a patent infringement case in the District Court, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). Digital forensics experts can utilize reverse engineering skills to determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft.
Litigation support by an internet protocol expert witness could include a digital forensic investigation, computer forensics, an expert report, expert opinion, expert testimony, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. An internet protocol expert witness needs to not only have expertise but must also possess the ability to explain evidence to lay people, including a jury. In addition, clients may seek an internet protocol subject matter expert for pre-litigation consulting work, which could include reverse engineering or a patent portfolio analysis.
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 and its nuances.
