Expert Opinion - Intellectual Property Disputes

We were engaged by the defendant in a patent infringement case dealing with food labeling products. A Stout Managing Director acted as the testifying damages expert to offer rebuttal opinions to plaintiff’s damages expert and to offer affirmative opinions regarding the proper measure of economic damages if liability was found. The damages theories addressed by Stout in this assignment included lost profits, price erosion, and reasonable royalty. As part of our analysis, we worked closely with the technical expert and the client in evaluating non-infringing alternative designs and prior art.
