VoIP Expert

for Patent Infringement Case

The need

Attorneys preparing a patent infringement cases against several large communications companies needed an expert in voice over internet protocol to make their case. The patents in-suit dealt with voice over internet protocol (VoIP) telephony technology providing voice to data and data to voice conversion in a seamless process. As the cases had not yet been filed, the clients intended to use the expert in their pre-suit diligence as well as throughout the case.

Our approach

From conversations with the client, we understood that they’d like an expert with teaching experience although this was not a requirement. Deposition and testimony experience was required. We went to work to find the best fit.

The expert

We found an expert with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and almost 30 years’ experience with developing and enhancing VoIP technology. He was especially knowledgeable about how VoIP technology connects to conventional telephone communications equipment. Well respected in his field, he was a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Finally, he had been a testifying expert on a high-profile case regarding VoIP technology in Federal Court.
