Expert Witness

Jim’s unusual blend of courtroom experience, scholarship and advisory work on trade secret issues qualifies him to assist courts and juries with expert testimony relating to trade secrets and patents. Most frequently, Jim serves as a testifying expert on whether a company meets the requirement of “reasonable measures” taken to protect its trade secrets. He has also submitted opinions related to international intellectual property treaties and compliance with U.S. law. With his extensive experience as a trial lawyer, Jim is able to digest large amounts of background material efficiently, and his communication skills reflect his background as a professor and diplomat. His independent practice means that conflicts are unlikely and he is able to control his calendar to respond to cases requiring a quick response.
