It is Important to Have the Right Witness on the Stand!

Testimonial:  A quote from one of the opposition's attorneys after deposing one of IDSC's consultants, JD... "In my entire career as an attorney, I have never seen a witness that knows the prior art as well as you do."


IDSC brings our legal clients that big pharma perspective and our consultants have that hands on experience in therapeutic areas that are being prosecuted now and for the next decade.


Our legal clients come to us because our expert witnesses have lengthy careers exposing them to a great breadth and depth of information and expertise. They have the skill necessary to critically evaluate the prior art, apply it to the case in question, and explain it in layman's terms.


We bring the right fit for purpose witness: We bring a medicinal chemist to comment on medicinal chemistry, a biologist to comment on biology, a PK expert to comment on PK, a formulation expert to comment on formulation, and so on.


Our legal clients come to IDSC because our expert witnesses have the credentials to show credibility through extensive research, long term experience, publications, field of expertise, etc.


From the literature: A university professor with no patent experience weighing in on a genus... commented on the utility and breadth of genus. Witness was discredited.
