Practicing Software Industry Experts

Software Experts

Eureka’s team members are, first and foremost, software experts. We design, develop, improve and analyze complex software at the highest level for a diverse range of clients. Eureka translates this industry knowledge and technical ability into a skilled software expert witness practice that knows the ins and outs of the legal system in addition to having the technical software expertise. We work hard to provide the best expert witness services to our clients and the Courts.

Trade Secret Experts

Parties often attempt to protect their trade secrets in the course of their various relationships. However, as relationships change and conclude, the handling (and mishandling) of trade secrets often becomes a critical issue that often ends up in litigation. We are experienced in assisting litigants and the Courts to decipher what is and is not in fact a trade secret (particularly software trade secrets), and to determine whether or not wrongful disclosure or misappropriation of such trade secrets has occurred.

Source Code Experts

Source code is an integral part of virtually every complex software litigation matter. Eureka’s team has written and worked with complex software in virtually every known programming and coding language. This breadth of technical experience allows us to quickly get involved as a source code expert witness in a software patent, copyright, or trade secret case, as well as provide value with regard to the review, analysis and comparison of the underlying software source code.

Patent Experts

As patent expert witnesses, Eureka has worked with both Plaintiffs and Defendants to review and analyze a wide range of software and technology related patents in both the federal court litigation as well as proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. We are experienced in reviewing and drafting claim charts, infringement contentions, interrogatories, requests for production, and more, and have submitted numerous expert reports on the myriad of potential topics in a software patent infringement case.
