Get the Scoop: Finding an Expert in Cat Litter



What’s the real scoop on cat litter? Sometimes you need to think inside the box to find the answer. IMS Consulting & Expert Services pawed through the experts for a case involving that foe of clean floors and bare feet everywhere—kitty litter.

Primary Case Issue

Our client, a company that manufactured cat litter, sued another manufacturer for the alleged infringement of a patent related to a clumping litter product.

Expert Witness Requirements

  • Cat litter industry familiarity
  • Knowledgeable about clay litter development, sieve analysis, particle analysis, external surface area models, sodium bentonite, and drop testing
  • Undergraduate degrees accepted with some preference for chemistry, materials science, or mineralogy
  • Deposition experience preferred

Expert Witness Search

An internal research team submitted a dozen experts within 10 business days. These experts were vetted by an IMS recruiter and included a co-inventor of a bentonite litter, a former process engineer with animal litter patent experience, and a senior chemist.

Expert Witness Placement

Two experts were chosen to work on this case: a co-founder of an entrepreneurial chemical engineering firm who held three animal litter patents and a former senior process development scientist who invented a clumpable, lightweight litter.

Case Results

The case settled.
