Your Plastics Expert Witness

Our Services

plastics Pellets

We are highly experienced in PLASTICS EXPERT WITNESS work for both plaintiffs and defendants in the following areas:

  • Patent Infringement
  • Patent Validity
  • Product Liability
  • IPR
  • Expert Reports


Good expert witnesses must have great credentials to be effective. We have almost 35 years of experience working with plastics. Working for world leading plastics processing equipment and contract manufacturers, completing manufacturing assessments for multi billion dollar plastics companies, presenting at and moderating top plastics technology conferences we feel we can best support your litigation. Below is a representative overview of the technologies we are familiar with and markets we are covering.


Plastics Materials

We are familiar with most of the existing plastics materials (chemical, mechanical, electrical, rheological, optical properties)

from A as in ABS to Z as in ZYTEL (thermoplastic polyamide, trademark by DuPont)

and everything in between

from Recycled materials to Bioplastics (non fossil fuel based), WPC (Wood Plastics Compounds)  to CFRTP
​(Carbon Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics)

from LSR (Liquid Silicon Rubber) to the latest high temperature Engineering Thermoplastics (PEEK, LCP, PSU, PEI)
