Laser Expert Witnesses
Depending on the target technology and product, laser expert witness candidates typically have advanced degree, extensive experience and areas of expertise in electrical engineering, optical engineering, physics, materials engineering, and/or mechanical engineering. If the case involves a medical expert, board certified specialists in reconstructive surgery, dentistry, ophthalmology, or dermatology may be called in. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness testimony experience is often a requirement. A chosen expert witness may be a member of an industry organization such as The Laser Institute, The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), and/or the IEEE.
A laser expert could provide expertise in intellectual property matters — a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secrets 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). Laser experts could also assist in product liability, malpractice, standard of care, and personal injury cases. In a litigation scenario, a technical expert can expect trial court testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as deposition, expert testimony, an expert report, and related consulting activities. In addition, a law firm may seek a laser industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work. Example matters that Cahn Litigation Services has searched for expert witnesses encompass:
