A management systems expert witness typically has an advanced degree, extensive experience, and expertise in electrical engineering, enterprise software, computer science, information technology, and/or software engineering – depending on the specific technology and product involved the case. Cahn Litigation Services is called on by law firms to locate expert witnesses that can support matters involving management systems technology. Experts in this field may have an affiliation with an industry organization such as the IEEE. A management systems software expert witness should have a deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the market and competitive landscape.
A management systems expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters — 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). In a litigation support scenario, a technical expert can expect courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as depositions, expert opinion, expert testimony, a prior art search, expert report, computer forensic analysis, claim charts, and related consulting activities. A forensics expert can determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft.
In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness experience is often a requirement. A management systems expert witness needs to not only have technical expertise, a testifying expert should possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, including a judge and jury. In addition, the attorney team may seek a software development expert or software engineer for pre-litigation consulting work.
