Intellectual Property (IP) Expert Witness

Intangible Business has a number of experienced intellectual property expert witnesses. They provide IP expert witness support as it relates to business and intangible asset issues and have experience in many different forums and tribunals for dispute resolution. Intangible Business's independence means it can be relied upon to deliver impartial, clear, succinct and unambiguous evidence when acting as an intellectual property expert witness. This results in objective opinions based on thoroughly researched evidence and assumptions. Intangible Business's intellectual property expert witnesses are experienced in writing detailed professional reports suitable for courts of law as well going on the stand as expert witnesses to present evidence in person on intellectual property, and to be tested and cross examined on that evidence.

Intangible Business's IP expert witnesses assist in dispute resolution with respect to both liability and quantum:

  • For liability this includes assessing commercial drivers of IP value, or IP licence provisions such as a requirement for a licensee to maintain IP value.
  • For quantifying losses or damages this often involves complex analysis which is then presented and explained clearly and succinctly in a commercial context. This then enables others to understand and follow the thought process, key assumptions and information used and overall conclusions made and that they are grounded in commercial reality.

Having expert witness valuers who have a broad range of experience and access to specialist knowledge, which brings knowledge and insight, helps resolve disputes. A core competency of Intangible Business's IP expert witness valuers is researching and analysing information used in practice for commercial creation and management of valuable IP, and applying this expertise to assist in dispute resolution. Whether for example commissioning qualitative or quantitative market research, interpreting existing research or other business data, Intangible Business's IP expert witnesses can be relied upon to understand and interpret the relevant information and present clear assumptions and conclusions.

Intangible Business's IP expert witnesses are members of The Academy of Experts, The Expert Witness Institute, The Society of Expert Witnesses and have supplied expert evidence for international arbitrations and courts or other forums for dispute resolution all over the world, including Australia, the UK, Jersey, Guernsey, The Cayman Islands, Eastern Europe, France, and the US.
