Nevium professionals provide IP expert witness testimony related to economic damages in a range of matters involving copyright, trademark, social media and right of publicity. We author Rule 26 reports for federal claims, as well as develop and present opinions and demonstratives for state court claims, arbitration and mediation. We have provided IP expert witness services in intellectual property litigation and business interruption matters on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants.
As trial-tested intellectual property experts, we bring extensive experience as business and transaction analysts, entrepreneurs, business owners and IP managers to our expert testimony. We have access to transaction, financial data and licensing transaction data, and seek to validate client information with third-party sources and outside research. Our objective is to develop a fact-based narrative to form the foundation of a supportable and reasonable damages analysis.
Pre-litigation IP Expert Witness Services
On a fixed fee basis, Nevium professionals will research prospective claims and develop a preliminary damages assessment, which allows attorneys and claimants to weigh the pros and cons of litigation prior to filing a complaint.
Infringement? Steps to Calculating Damages
At the beginning of an IP expert witness damages assignment, our clients often ask “what information will we need to provide?” After clearing conflicts, we typically ask the following questions:
- Which products rely on the IP Assets that are the subject of the litigation and infringement claims?
- Are detailed accounting records for the IP-dependent products available?
- Does the IP Asset owner engage in any licensing?
- How and where was the IP Asset used / infringed?
