SEO Expert Witness | Internet & Website Expert Witness Digital Marketing

It’s horrible, right?

When an online party violates your exclusive rights and infringe on your trademark? Or when they defame your online reputation on purpose so they can end the competition? Or What do you do when a competitor damages your SEO rankings and results by using negative SEO? Or when you hire an SEO agency to manage your digital marketing, and they fail miserably? These are some of the situations when the assistance of an SEO Expert Witness comes into play.

There are millions of illegally functioning online parties.

So, you’re not the first, the second, nor the third company to have your rights violated. In fact, millions of companies worldwide suffer every year from such infringements. And sadly, the majority of them are never compensated for their losses.

Due to the fact that internet marketing, websites, and SEO are relatively new fields, they still require a valid policing body and clear standards. It isn’t clear to the jury what a reasonable judgment is in most cases, and the court finds it hard to evaluate the full extent of the done damage.

For example, a jury isn’t usually able to identify copied SEO strategies or website design to correctly assess the damage done to a business — and that often results in unjust verdicts and huge losses for lots of companies. In other cases, there may be an overlap in strategy between two similar companies in one industry, which makes it insanely hard to recognize and prove any infringements or right violations.

If that happened to you, your situation could take two of the following courses:

  1. You decide to go on with your life because you don’t believe there’s much to you can do to convince the court.
  2. Or you hire a lawyer and file a lawsuit, but the jury doesn’t understand your case and comes out with an unfair judgment.

Thankfully, there’s a third scenario:

You hire an Expert Witness to help your attorney, and they nudge the jury into making the right decision to compensate you for your losses.

Online Reputation Defamation Case

Thomas has provided expert witness services in many high profile lawsuits. Amongst them was Dr. Lawrence Crosby’s case where he was able to clearly articulate the full extent of the damage done to Dr. Lawrence’s reputation after a false arrest that went viral on hundreds of websites and social media platforms.

The way Thomas helped was by answering questions and offering his professional opinion to the court. And that made a huge difference and contributed to the law taking its own course. The result was 1.25 million compensation to the damaged party.

Business Owner Website Case

A business owner was accused of copying the website of his former Franchisor when he branched out and set up his own venture. The attorneys accused him of copying the design as well as the content. The Plaintiff’s attorney called on Thomas as a website expert witness to analyze both websites and come up with findings. After a complete analysis, Thomas concluded that the website design, as well as the copy, had no similarities to the defendant’s website. Thomas was deposed and based on his opinion, the case was decided in the Plaintiff’s favor which saved them hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential damages.

Medical Practitioner SEO Case

A medical practitioner was sued by his former employer after starting his own practice. He was accused of copying Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Pay Per Click (PPC) strategies.

The medical practitioner (although he started his practice two years later than his former employer) was outranking his former employer for several keywords on Google and other search engines. And that prompted the former employer to aggressively come after him and file a lawsuit. The former employer’s lawyers built a strong case that accused the plaintiff of stealing SEO and Digital Marketing strategies.

Thomas was called upon as a Digital Marketing Expert Witness by the plaintiff’s attorneys to disprove this claim. His prior SEO expert witness experience, as well as his detailed analysis, saved the client from having to settle this case. All the records were subpoenaed by the defense attorneys.  Thomas and his team did extensive research and analyzed both website’s SEO and PPC related tags, links, content and tasks in detail using the latest tools and strategies to debunk this claim. Thomas was able to prove with clarity that the SEO strategies used by the medical practitioner were unique and was not copied. This resulted in the case to be ruled in the client’s favor — which got the case dismissed.
