Project Description

Mobile device power expert
for patent litigation

The need

Attorneys at a top-ranked AmLaw firm needed an expert in mobile device power management to defend against the claims of patent infringement against their client, a leading smartphone manufacturer. The infringement claim pertained to a patent for managing display power consumption in mobile devices.

Our approach

From discussions with the attorneys, we determined that the ideal expert would have a research focus on mobile device power management and specifically, in managing screen and power consumption. In anticipation of the case heading to court, it was important that the expert have prior litigation testimony experience in addition to distinguished credentials.

The expert

We identified a proven expert in our network who earned her PhD in energy efficiency with a concentration on dynamic management of power consumption. Her background included leadership in a lab studying system energy efficiency as well as experience as a research scientist at a leading computer manufacturer and as a design engineer of programmable logic devices. In addition, she published over 200 research papers and served on several technical paper committees. Further to being top in her field, she had a strong background in testifying and depositions.
