A laboratory expert witness typically has extensive experience in chemistry, forensic toxicology, forensic science, and/or as a forensic laboratory director.
Litigation support by a laboratory expert often involves intellectual property matters such as a patent litigation or a trade secret dispute. A laboratory expert might also provide testimony in a medical case that requires toxicology expertise. Additionally, laboratory testing of evidence, for example DNA evidence, can be pivotal in assisting law enforcement with a crime scene investigation. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may require a subject matter expert with prior expert testimony experience. Clients may also seek an experienced laboratory professional for pre-litigation consulting work.
Litigation support services by a laboratory expert witness could include failure analysis, reverse engineering, DNA testing, expert report preparation, deposition, expert opinion, and/or courtroom testimony.
