Matters of intellectual property often involve complicated technology—we help counsel breakdown, teach, and communicate complex concepts essential to the case.

In IP cases, the devil is often in the details as jurors and judges alike struggle to understand fine differences in complex and unfamiliar technology. Effective teaching is key to winning, and pre-trial research combined with clear and interesting graphics are key to getting you there. And, DOAR consultants give you the tools to nest your teaching in a compelling people-focused story that rises above the technology and keeps fact-finders engaged, empathic, and educated about your case.

“The work that the DOAR team produced and executed was flawless. Their guidance and support on multiple iterations of the presentation were simply excellent.”

Research

When you are trying to rise above the technological details to craft a clear and compelling narrative of justice and injustice, mock trials and focus groups are invaluable. Research participants illuminate how jurors are likely to evaluate each party’s actions and inactions, and help you identify your client’s strongest themes and evidence. Further, hearing people grapple with the technology in lay terms can vastly improve your ability to teach it clearly at trial using graphics that were tested and refined through pre-trial research. Finally, DOAR consultants bring in knowledge from both pre-trial research and our national study of jurors’ IP-related attitudes to help you select the jury most receptive to your clients’ positions.

Graphics Consulting & Design

In teaching complex technology, a picture is worth a thousand words. An animated tutorial is worth a million.
