How do you prepare a scientifically supported defense?


How do I prove my client’s patent is being infringed upon? How do I determine the root cause of a product failure? How do I verify the chemical composition and characteristics of a finished pharmaceutical product match those approved by regulators?

With law experts in many disciplines and industries, EAG has solved numerous such problems through carefully designed investigations, objective laboratory analysis and expert witness testimony. When you need solid science to inform legal strategy, protect intellectual property, or address product liability and insurance cases, no scientific and engineering services company has more experience.

Product Innovation & Improvement

Help your clients protect intellectual property and trade secrets as they create new technologies and applications with EAG’s support. Our scientists provide data and analysis for patent applications and litigation for intellectual property disputes. If you need to replicate a patented synthetic process for a pharmaceutical, or determine if an engineering process infringes upon a patent, EAG scientists know how.

Investigation & Troubleshooting

EAG scientists and consultants work with attorneys to evaluate cases for potential claims related to product liability, insurance, and infringement. We have extensive experience performing product defect investigations on aircrafts, automobiles, industrial, medical, and consumer products. Failure analysis, materials testing, metallurgical analysis, electronics testing and contamination identification have helped resolve legal challenges for manufacturers and distributors across many industries.

Quality Assurance

EAG can help ensure well-supported legal arguments with objective science, particularly when legal disputes focus on out-of-specification test results or contamination investigations. We also help design proactive testing programs to prevent potential failures and minimize risk.

Regulatory Compliance

EAG offers investigations and testing in FDA-registered, DEA-licensed and GMP/GLP-compliant facilities. Additionally, we are ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 certified. Our legal clients know they can rely on EAG’s high-quality standards and long history of regulatory compliance.

Manufacturing & Supply Chain Support

Legal clients turn to EAG scientists to validate the purity of supply chains and finished products, and to verify the authenticity of components sourced from different vendors. When no standards currently exist, EAG scientists have successfully determined root causes of multiple product failures and contamination issues.


EAG’s experience extends beyond the laboratory and into the courtroom. We maintain a team of litigation experts who regularly assist clients with trial preparation, depositions, and expert witness testimony. EAG scientists have extensive experience supporting cases involving intellectual property, product liability, and insurance claims, as well as evaluating the scientific validity of academic publications, media reports, and other claims for government institutions and private industry.
