Physics expert witness candidates typically possess an advanced degree and extensive experience in physics, or a related engineering discipline – depending on the specific technology or product involved. A medical physicist, for example, applies physics in medicine, often for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The expert witness chosen may be a member of an industry organization such as the American Physics Society, the American Institute of Physics and/or the IEEE. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness testimony experience is often a requirement.
A physics expert often provides expertise in intellectual property matters such as a patent infringement or trade secrets dispute. Litigation support services can include courtroom testimony, as well as depositions, expert opinion, expert report preparation, forensic engineering, and related consulting activities. In addition, clients may seek a subject matter expert for pre-litigation consultant work. Example projects that Cahn Litigation Services has performed searches for physics and science experts have involved:
