Expert evidence plays an important—and sometimes pivotal—role in intellectual property dispute resolution. However, the roles and  responsibilities of the expert in preparing a report or giving witness testimony is often misunderstood or shrouded in mystery.

This full day course seeks to introduce participants to the world of expert evidence with a focus on patent and IP valuation disputes, whether  in  court  or  before  a  tribunal  (e.g.  in  arbitration proceedings).

The course will cover:

  • What expert evidence is about, and the general duties and obligations of an expert witness
  • Tracks catering to patent law / practice or IP valuation, which will run concurrently
  • Step-by-step overview of the entire process from engagement to the end of the trial/hearing, with practical guidance on administrative aspects  (e.g. contractual agreement and remuneration)

Upon completion of the course, subject-matter experts who qualify (e.g. Principal Investigator/Lead Scientist/Research Group Lead or equivalent, and above) and professional valuers who qualify will be included in a list of technical/valuation experts maintained by IPOS, which parties to a patent or other IP-related dispute can consider appointing as an expert witness. Those on the list may also be invited to join the WIPO List of Neutrals.

As part of APIEx’ collaboration with the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPO)S , we are pleased to confirm a 20% discount for APIEx members who sign up for the course. In the course sign-up form, please indicate “APIEx Member” and whether you are attending the “technical experts” track or the “valuation experts” track.
