Expert Witness – Biotechnology

An expert witness in biotechnology is a person, who by virtue of his or her knowledge, experience, education, training, and skills, has special knowledge of one of the many technologies in the bioeconomy that is not known to the general public.   The initial function of the biotechnology expert witness is usually to examine a particular bio technology and to give the attorney or client an idea of why the particular technology did or did not work properly.  If the technology failed to deliver some specified result, the technical expert will often be asked to opine as whether such failure was a result of the technology’s design, manufacturing, instillation, operation or some combination, and whether such failure was the cause of some damages.  If the information provided by the expert is helpful to the attorney, the technical expert will likely be disclosed an “expert witness” in the pending biofuels or biochemicals litigation.  If the initial information provided is not helpful in terms of prevailing on issues of either causation or damages, the attorney may nevertheless use the information to make an informed decision as to whether to settle the matter.
