Vehicle Telematics Expert in Automotive Electronics
A vehicle telematics expert with automotive electronics hardware design experience was needed for a trade secrets case. The parties, both at the forefront of the wireless technologies market, entered into discussions of forming a joint venture corporation that would provide a vehicle telemetry and fleet tracking solution. No company was ever formed, leading the plaintiff to allege that the defendant misappropriated trade secrets for developing wireless products disclosed when the new venture was being pursued.
