Several common measurements and general methodologies are currently being used to calculate infringement damages in intellectual property (IP) lawsuits. To determine the most applicable ones, practitioners need to consider key facts and circumstances of a particular dispute.

However, with the changing litigation climate, damages calculation becomes more complex and vulnerable to a myriad of risks. Thus, financial experts and counsel should keep up with the emerging regulatory developments and court rulings in this field of law to be able to ascertain the best calculation tools and techniques.

In a LIVE Webcast, IP experts Cleve B. Tyler, PhD (Berkeley Research Group, LLC) and Christopher L. Schulte (Ankura Consulting Group, LLC) will present a comprehensive discussion of the current and emerging trends and issues in IP damages calculation. Speakers will also share effective techniques and best practices to mitigate risks in calculating damages figures in 2021.

Key topics include:

  • IP Damages Calculation: Recent Trends and Developments
  • Notable Court Rulings
  • Approaches in Determining IP Damages
  • IP Damages Calculation Tools and Techniques
