Expertise Description

I have spent over two decades in valuation, business finance and strategic consulting matters.

My analyses and opinions have been used and relied upon in matters including: defamation, technology asset and patent valuation, impact of social media marketing and celebrity endorsements, trademark infringement, copyright infringement, divorce and bankruptcy.

In addition, I have worked with business owners, executives and managers to increase the profitability of their businesses based on leveraging their intellectual properties and intangible assets. Businesses often have business plans and marketing plans, but rarely do they have IP plans – focused on leveraging their proprietary assets to generate additional income and increase profits.
