Expert Witness Services
Oraton Consulting offers Expert Witness services (testifying and non-testifying) in the areas of automotive software, automotive control systems (braking, steering, suspension), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS: ACC, lane keeping, blind spot), Self-Driving Cars / Autonomous Vehicles, and telecommunication systems, both wired (DSL, Ethernet) and wireless (5G, WiFi).
Our Principal, Ioannis Kanellakopoulos, PhD, has almost 20 years of expert witness experience in patent infringement and product liability cases in the automotive and telecommunication areas: 100% of his cases have resulted in a win or a very favorable settlement for his clients. In 2017, he was the lead expert witness in a case that resulted in a $25M jury award for his clients; this decision was later upheld on appeal. His deep technical expertise in the areas of telecommunications and automotive driver assistance systems allows him to analyze patents and products in detail, and explain clearly (in expert reports, depositions, and court testimony) the main issues that the judge and jury need to comprehend internalize in order to understand comprehend the essence of the case. His extensive educational experience allows him to help judges and jurors understand the topic they are dealing with, instead of confusing them with unnecessary technical details.
After all, it takes excellent teaching skills and a deep understanding of a complex technical concept to convey the essence of that concept to non-experts without talking down to them.
