Stout was engaged by the Plaintiff in a trade secrets dispute involving two leading automotive suppliers. The parties entered into an agreement in which the Defendant would manufacture one of the Plaintiff's components exclusively and without the right to sell the component in the Plaintiff's active markets. The Defendant used the Plaintiff's designs and specifications to produce and sell a similar component. Stout prepared a disgorgement analysis of the historical benefit received by the Defendant due to its infringing sales. Stout also prepared a reasonable royalty analysis for future sales. The client was awarded Stout's calculated lost profits as well as receiving a favorable running royalty associated with future sales of the product.
