ARPC is a leading provider of expertise in the economic concerns unique to intellectual property.  We apply economic analyses in IP disputes to determine damages in connection with infringement and breach-of-contract claims involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, and to address such issues as irreparable harm and the commercial success of a patent.  Our experts are well-versed in the widely accepted methods used to value intellectual property ranging from a single patent to a diverse portfolio consisting of several patents, trademarks, trade secrets, and other intellectual assets.

We have consulted throughout all stages of the litigation process, including depositions and trials, and offer expert testimony regarding the values of patents, trademarks, trade secrets, and copyrights and damages associated with alleged infringement of such assets.  We can conduct analyses based on reasonable royalties and lost profits and quantified levels of price erosion.  Our experts have rebutted alternative damage calculations, developed alternative valuation analyses, and implemented financial models to determine the impact on economic damages of alternative theories and/or assumptions.  We have analyzed licensing strategies, modeled hypothetical negotiations, and quantified the impact of non-infringing alternatives within the market and have also estimated damages based on disgorgement of unjust gains.
