Power management expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree in electrical engineering, along with extensive experience. Over the years, Cahn Litigation Services has been approached by multiple attorney clients to locate expert witnesses, on behalf of either the plaintiff or defendant, that can support legal proceedings involving power management. Most often the expert witness chosen is member of an industry organization such as the IEEE.
A power management expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters such as 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). In a litigation scenario, a technical expert can expect expert testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as a prior art search, arbitration, expert opinion, failure analysis, an expert report, forensic engineering, and related consulting activities. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness testimony experience is often a requirement. A technical expert witness needs to not only have expertise, but should also possess the ability to explain technical evidence to lay people, including a jury. In addition, clients may seek a subject matter expert in electrical engineering for pre-litigation consulting work.
Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn an expert witness search around quickly and provide candidates with the right balance of expertise and testimony to support each unique project.
Please Note: All Cahn Litigation expert witness searches are customized to attorneys' precise specifications and preferences. Attorneys are encouraged to discuss search parameters with a Cahn search specialist.
