Intellectual Property Expert Witness, What Qualifications Should They Have?

In the world of expert witnesses, finding a great intellectual property expert witness can be difficult. The argument between academic credentials and industry experience is always a factor when choosing the best intellectual property expert for your case. Most attorneys will agree that the right expert witness can depend heavily on the case. Finding the right expert witness can make or break your case.

Credibility

You should look for someone who is credible. If you were looking for advice on a specific subject is this someone that you would include on your shortlist of people to ask for advice? If someone does not have relevant education and experience the opposition will highlight that and discredit them in front of the jury.

Communication

You should look for an expert who is polished but not too smooth. You want someone who can communicate clearly and convincingly, but who is not too much of a salesman that the jury gets the idea that they are being sold something. This all comes down to experience, knowledge and a belief in what they are saying.

Consistency

You should look for an expert who will stand their ground, even if that means disagreeing with you on some points. An expert who adopts your viewpoint on everything will not hold up well in trial. The opposing counsel has a hay day with an expert who is not representing facts that they are convinced of.

If you find an expert witness that meets all of these requirements, you have a great expert witness. They will represent you well in court and in many cases can be the deciding factor in a case.
