Antitrust and Competition

Antitrust and Intellectual Property

Antitrust and Intellectual Property

NERA economists have extensive experience working on issues at the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property (IP) law. NERA experts have prepared economic analyses for litigation and regulatory proceedings involving the use and abuse of standard setting, licensing and patent extension, mergers with intellectual property issues, damages assessments, and patent settlements.
 
We have experience working in a wide range of industries and keep pace with the ever-changing business world, including the rapidly evolving developments in the pharmaceutical, medical equipment, computer hardware and software, e-commerce, and other high-technology sectors.  We are adept at applying data analysis techniques and innovative econometric models to complex issues in cases that straddle IP and antitrust law. We also assist clients and counsel by preparing analyses and testimony in antitrust counterclaims, which are often filed in response to patent infringement suits.
