Cahn Litigation Services is skilled and experienced at sourcing satellite technology subject matter experts to provide services for litigation matters, and is called upon by attorneys to locate satellite communications expert witnesses, representing the plaintiff or defendant. A satellite communications expert witness typically has a background in systems engineering, satellite imagery, satellite communication, wireless communication, and/or antennas. A satellite communications expert witness should have a deep understanding not only of the target technology, but also of the major players in the industry, market size, and market share. Often, the expert witness chosen is member of an industry organization such as the Satellite Industry Association (SIA), IEEE, and/or the Global VSAT Forum (GVF). An expert witness needs to possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, such as a judge and a juror.
A satellite communications expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters, such as 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 (where the only expert testimony is through a deposition), or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC).
Litigation support by a satellite communications expert witness could include reverse engineering, failure analysis, expert report, expert opinion, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. Clients may also seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
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.
