Electric Vehicles

An electric vehicle dominated future is now a near-term reality and has ignited a race for patent control between automotive incumbents, battery suppliers, and high-tech entrants to the industry, making increased litigation an inevitability. 

WIT consistently remains at the forefront of the legal and technical issues related to electric vehicles and has built an impressive team of experts to address the next wave of litigation. Our experts include prominent academics, industry veterans, and technical subject matter experts in battery composition and construction, power management systems, SEP analyses, and more.

Electric Vehicles Litigation Expert Team

The intellectual property behind electric vehicles (EV) represents a broad array of hardware and software technologies ranging from cutting-edge batteries and systems controls to sensors, plus the importation of components that represent a morass of standard-essential patent coverage. WIT’s electric vehicles expert team was created to address what we expect to be the key areas of litigation that will arise in the move to electric fleets and who will provide industry and academic perspectives essential to any litigation.

The automotive industry is already experiencing standard-essential patent (SEP)-based litigation that has ensnared a growing number of manufacturers and Tier 1 companies. WIT has been involved in many of these cases, providing experts that range from an academic who was in the room where 5G standards were created to an antitrust economist who has spent a career analyzing the intricacies of patent pools. WIT continues to keep its eyes on emerging pools in EV charging and battery technology.
