Areas of Expertise
I have worked on a number of complex contract dispute cases, including providing trend analysis, product testing/analysis, sales forecasting, insights into the value of often hard to quantify features/facets of products/services, and additional services. Experience also includes work on multiple patent infringement matters and trademark infringement matters, with extensive research and historical analysis and consulting work required. I have been deposed before (all cases settled prior to trial), and provided expert reports, and provided work to many of the world’s most recognizable brands and businesses.
Consulting work has ranged the gamut from market research and trend analysis to contract review, sales forecasting, and business intelligence and insights to providing high-level strategic planning assistance. Drawing upon my many years of experience as an analyst and developer/publisher off products and services, several clients have also looked to me for deeper insight into the shape of specific markets, products/services, and the processes which shape all. I have worked in tandem with economists and damages experts to weigh the relative value of items relating to various matters, and I have worked with counsel to provide feedback and analysis of matters-including making sense of complex issues and recovering often hard to find and obscure data import.
