Securing $63.8 Million in Patent Damages
An Ankura professional was engaged by a plaintiff and its legal counsel as an expert witness to prepare a royalty damages analysis in a patent infringement matter. The Ankura team analyzed an array of product, market, and financial records to apply a Georgia-Pacific analysis, and the team reached an expert opinion regarding the amount of reasonable royalty damages. For procedural reasons, the case was tried twice. The jury considered the expert testimony of the Ankura professional in both instances, awarding the plaintiff $3.7 million initially and ultimately $63.8 million.
