Using Citation Analysis in Patent Valuation and Litigation

20 December 2022
By Dr. Daniel Werner, Huy Dang

Associate Director Dr. Dan Werner and Senior Analyst Huy Dang have published “Using Citation Analysis in Patent Valuation and Litigation” in The Value Examiner. In their paper, Dr. Werner and Dang discuss the theory and practice of citation analysis and how it can be relevant to the work of damages experts and valuation analysts in the context of litigation.

The authors use examples of court rulings as well as thorough analysis to conclude that, when applied correctly, citation analysis can be admitted as part of expert testimony on apportionment and reasonable royalty damages. They note that citation analysis has been excluded when it is incorrectly applied.
