Software Expert Witness & Litigation Consulting

Team of experts talking and investigating software

If you need expert testimony about software and computer technology, look no further.

Our software experts perform source code review and explain how the code works. We author expert reports supporting specific conclusions with technical evidence.

We provide software expert witness testimony and consulting. We’re specialized in software IP litigation including: patent infringement, copyright infringement, and trade secret misappropriation.

We are techies who speak legalese

Lawyers and engineers speak, write, and think differently. Translating tech jargon into the precise, unambiguous language of the law isn’t taught to engineers. We know how to do it.

An effective software expert witness must understand the legal issues in question. Software patents are legal documents, not engineering documents, and many engineers find them baffling…but we don’t.

We explain technical concepts to non-experts in a way that is easy to understand. That’s a skill we’ve carefully honed over years of practice.
