With offices across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, NERA is widely recognized as a leading global provider of expertise in intellectual property economics. Our deep understanding of markets across industries and regulatory environments where IP plays a role enables our consultants to provide accurate, independent, and thorough analysis to law firms and companies around the world.
NERA experts apply rigorous economic analysis in IP disputes to determine damages in connection with infringement and breach-of-contract claims involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, and to address issues such as irreparable harm, the commercial success of a patent, and the impact of claimed false or misleading advertising.
Our valuation consultants value IP in connection with selling or licensing negotiations, preparing required transfer pricing documentation, obtaining advance approval from a tax authority for the price of a particular trade flow or resolving a tax controversy. We help our clients identify portions of their IP portfolios that have value, develop strategies to manage risk, and use their IP for strategic advantage in the marketplace.
