Under two simple characters – “5G” – sits a complex picture of thousands of standards, 80,000+ SEPs, dozens of participants, and hundreds of immediate licensing and litigation targets. WIT has become the go-to resource for any expert witness need in the 5G space.
WIT has built teams of testifying and consulting experts that touch on every aspect of 5G (and 4G) litigation, licensing, valuation, and business advice. On an ongoing basis, we engage with law firms, in-house counsel, academic and industry players, patent pools, and licensing entities to stay ahead of the curve on 5G litigation trends.
At WIT, we affiliate with the most prominent academics and industry insiders, including an expert who helps set the U.S. policy at the ITU-T and experts who know 5G standards and can tell you which are “zombies” and have never been implemented. WIT also represents fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) economists who are prolific about the economic benefits of patent pools.
