Subtopics

Antitrust issues sometimes arise in intellectual property matters. A party accused of patent infringement may, for example, countersue, alleging that the infringement claim is a de facto attempt at wrongful monopolization. In such matters, as in all antitrust cases, we employ our significant expertise to define relevant markets, analyze market power, and assess potential harm to competition.

Analysis of Antitrust Counterclaims

Our experts in intellectual property perform damages analysis with rigorous economic tools that meet the higher standards of proof used increasingly by Federal courts to determine intellectual property damages in the last decade. Our clients also rely on us for assistance in resolving transaction disputes that have involved patents, copyrights, and trademarks, as well as a wide range of other issues.  

Nathan’s deep experience in intellectual property includes a wide range of technologies, including high technology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, software, materials, cellular, WiFi, and more.  

Our expertise includes the apportionment of the value of individual or portfolios of patents when a product is covered by a patent pool, the determination of fair, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory (FRAND/RAND) royalties for standard essential patents (SEP), and price premium analysis in class action false-labeling matters, as well as a wide range of patent infringement matters.

Damages Analysis for Patent, Copyright, Trademark, Trade Secret and Related Matters

Crafting a comprehensive, defensible damages analysis does not take place in a vacuum. A successful effort can depend just as much on an effective discovery process as on success in the liability aspects of a case. Our experts work with counsel from the outset to identify and guide the production of those data, documents, and foundational facts needed to support potent and persuasive testimony on damages.  

By anticipating theories and arguments likely to be advanced by the other party, our team helps counsel develop evidence through discovery to neutralize or counter such efforts. The result is a confident, fully informed legal team that can conduct the damages side of the case to the client’s greatest benefit.
