Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Expert Witnesses

Robert is a managing director in the Washington DC office of AlixPartners’ litigation and arbitration practice. He is a certified public accountant with extensive experience as a consultant and expert witness in complex domestic and international litigations and arbitrations. 

He has testified in federal and state courts and before arbitral panels internationally in intellectual property, including patent, trademark, copyright and trade secrets; contractual, antitrust, securities and regulatory matters. He has conducted valuations, forensic investigations, and provided consulting and accounting advice to commercial entities and government organisations.

He has been the expert witness for both claimants and respondents and plaintiffs and defendants.  He provided expert testimony for the plaintiff in a patent infringement matter where the jury awarded the largest damage award of the year. He also provided testimony for the defendant in a matter, where the plaintiff claimed $4 billion in damages and he successfully convinced the Court to eliminate over 90 per cent of plaintiff’s claim prior to trial.

Robert is known for his intellectual curiosity and his ability to review and analyse case specifics, determine an appropriate and supportable claim and present his opinion to a panel, jury or judge in a clear and convincing manner.

Prior to joining AlixPartners, he was national director of the intellectual property practice of LECG and was also a senior audit partner at Deloitte. He was also a participant in the US President’s executive exchange programme and served as the special executive assistant to the inspector general at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Robert holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in biology, and did his graduate studies at the City University of New York. 

WWL says: Robert Yerman is an esteemed expert witness who wins high praise from sources as a go-to adviser in complex IP and contractual disputes.
