Satellite Communications Expert in Systems Engineering

Case Description:

A satellite communications expert in systems engineering was needed for an action alleging breach of contract and breach of warranty in the aftermath of a bankruptcy. The defendant, a major telecommunications provider, had a subsidiary consisting of a satellite communications network. Plaintiffs invested in the subsidiary and it was spun off as an independent company offering global voice and paging services. When the subsidiary filed for bankruptcy less than a year after launching its satellite communications services, plaintiffs filed suit against the telecommunications company, claiming that because of systems engineering issues they did not receive reasonably equivalent value for their purchase. Plaintiffs alleged the sale constituted fraudulent transfer and violated an implied warranty.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to find satellite communications experts with systems engineering experience who could opine on design, development, and execution of the satellite communications network.
