Compass Lexecon, LLC, a subsidiary of FTI Consulting, is pleased to announce that UCLA Law Professor Douglas Lichtman, a nationally recognized expert in patent and copyright law, has joined the firm as a Senior Consultant. Mr. Lichtman will spearhead the firm’s new efforts related to intellectual property litigation and consulting.
“In many ways, coming to Compass Lexecon is coming home,” remarked Lichtman, who previously taught for ten years at the University of Chicago alongside a number of Compass Lexecon principals. “I’m excited to tap Compass Lexecon’s depth at economic analysis and combine it with my own expertise in the economic, legal and strategic complexities associated with intellectual property litigation. We can do so much more together than we have been doing apart.”
Dan Fischel, Compass Lexecon’s Chairman and President, echoed those sentiments. “We are thrilled to welcome Doug to Compass Lexecon. He is a leading advisor on patent and copyright strategy. His vast experience and fresh perspective on these topics make him an excellent addition as we grow our intellectual property practice.”
