IMS ExpertServices works with three distinct groups of individuals.
Law Firms: We locate and deliver high quality experts to testify in complex business to business litigation. Learn more about the services we provide to law firm attorneys.

Experts: We place highly qualified experts on major corporate cases and handle all the back office services including contracts, billing and collections. Learn more about the advantages of being an expert through IMS on the expert services page.
When you contact us about a case, we start by determining the experience, education and other qualities you require in an expert or consultant. Our research department then utilizes a rigorous search process to discover industry professionals and academics who fit the description.
After we have discovered multiple experts who meet the criteria needed, our recruiters contact them to confirm qualifications, availability and interest. Only those experts who have a solid command of their subject matter and the ability to convey that expertise in court pass our test.
The highly credentialed, experienced experts who remain are presented to you. There is no fee for our search. Only after you are satisfied and retain an expert does IMS charge a fee. Our fees are placed on top of an expert’s hourly rate and presented to you as one rate that is within the customary range.
From facilitating the first conversation between you and an expert to handling the paperwork and billing, IMS will support you throughout the progress of your case. If you need experts with impressive educational backgrounds, specific industry experience or prior expert witness experience, IMS can deliver them to you.
To view examples of experts with whom IMS has developed a relationship, you can browse our experts by category or keyword. This is not an exhaustive list. If you do not find the expert you are looking for, please give us a call.

Featured Case Study
An antitrust economics expert was needed to review the interplay between several patents and antitrust law, specifically how it related to those issues affecting standards setting bodies and patent pools. The expert needed to provide an opinion regarding the anti competitive effects of standards setting and licensing activities in a patent infringement action involving recordable DVDs.
The patents in this case related to recordable DVDs that are used for audio and video recording. One of the issues in this case was the assertion of patent misuse based on antitrust related theories, including conspiracy to restrain trade through standards setting activities. IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate an expert in antitrust economics with a Ph.D. in economics and experience at the Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, or dealing with enforcement issues regarding patent antitrust disputes.
