Industrial Engineering Expert in Safety Product Design
An industrial engineering expert with safety product design experience was requested for a case alleging patent infringement, fraud, trade secret misappropriation, and unfair competition. At issue in this case were protective goggles for the military market. Unaware of the connections to a competitor, plaintiff approached a component manufacturer and provided samples of its product. Defendant subsequently developed and introduced protective eyewear for the military. Claimant alleged the defendant reverse engineered its product and, using knowledge it obtained fraudulently, entered into the military safety product market.
