Against the backdrop of a highly dynamic environment that can rapidly disrupt the business models and market positions of participants, Compass Lexecon has provided economic consulting and expert testimony to clients across multiple technology sectors.
Our economists have extensive experience in the assessment of conduct in antitrust matters. We have been retained by companies across a wide variety of industries, including the software sector (on issues ranging from operating systems to highly specialized software products); the hardware sector (involving high-end servers, monitors, printers, and computers); Internet services; mobile telephony; and video distribution. These engagements have involved numerous subjects of antitrust litigation, including relevant market definition, exclusionary conduct, monopolization, and collusion.
A significant component of our work in the technology area centers on issues surrounding intellectual property. We have provided clients with valuations of intellectual property portfolios, estimation of damages arising from infringement, determination of reasonable royalty rates, price erosion studies, and assessments of monopolization claims with respect to patent or copyright misuse.
Compass Lexecon economists in the technology practice area have particular expertise in the following areas:
- Patent Portfolios Valuations
- Exclusionary Conduct
