Clear, concise, and persuasive.
Through every phase of intellectual property litigation, BDO’s Litigation, Arbitration, and Dispute Advisory Practice supports clients using sound financial analysis, extensive legal experience, and a rigorous theory-based approach.
We handle a range of disputes involving patent, trademark, and copyright infringement, as well as the misappropriation of trade secrets. Tailoring our services accordingly, our professionals work closely with major multinational corporations, universities, startups, franchises, and individual inventors.
Our approach to calculating intellectual property damages is built on a broad understanding of intellectual property protection and economic issues. To determine royalty damages, we apply numerous theories – Georgia-Pacific factors, Panduit test, design-around options – while focusing on the specific facts of each case. We understand the types of records prepared by organizations and the analytic methods needed to condense this information into presentations that are clear, concise, and persuasive.
With significant experience in responding to Daubert motions and preparing for Markman hearings, we aim to ensure that our clients understand the nuances of opposing opinions. Backed by the extensive resources of one of the world’s largest international accounting and consulting networks, our team of experienced accountants and industry veterans helps clients settle disputes efficiently in the U.S. and around the globe.
