DOAR advises on a wide breadth of transactional intellectual property areas including technology-based M&A, licensing, valuations, portfolio reviews, patent mining, and offensive/defensive acquisition strategy and review.
We actively monitor the key issues impacting IP litigation today and are thought leaders on emerging technologies with inside knowledge around communication standards and design (like 5G and wireless infrastructure), IoT, ADAS, video/audio streaming, and sensors.
Our consultants and testifying experts have decades of combined experience in industry, academia, and consulting. They collectively hold hundreds of U.S. patents, have been awarded more than $120M in research grants, and are the foremost authorities on intellectual property design, standards, systems, devices, materials, processes and more. Our testifying experts are fellows or senior members of the IEEE, SPIE, and other recognized professional engineering organizations and have extensive experience testifying before a wide range of commissions and venues, including the FTC, ITC, FCC, FERC, PTAB, and federal and district courts. They have been published thousands of times and have been featured speakers at industry conferences both domestically and internationally.
Our expert teams provide their expertise as well as support for the technical research, review, and guidance needed. We work closely with IP litigation teams to ensure that we provide actionable insight and strategic advice to help advance our clients’ litigation strategies.
We have decades of experience working on cases using credentialed experts. Our unique team approach integrates three core factors to deliver expert guidance:
It takes more than technical expertise to drive home a position persuasively. It takes comprehensive research and actionable insight. And, it takes proven communication and time management skills. At DOAR, our expert teams bring together the best testifying experts with experienced engineers and IP specialists that can cover more ground and do it effectively.
We have worked with hundreds of clients on thousands of complex cases and have extensive expertise at trial in state and federal courts, the ITC, before the PTAB, and at arbitrations and mediations. DOAR understands that each setting requires an expert team with distinct qualities and qualifications appropriate for the specific venue.
Our team approach delivers better insight and support to litigation teams that enables them to develop a more powerful strategy. Lawyers work with our consultants and testifying experts who have in-depth domain knowledge and benefit from skilled analysts who conduct the research, due diligence, and analysis that inform the expert opinion.
Our trial consulting practice provides strategic advice on complex, high-stakes legal matters. We deliver unparalleled guidance to lawyers before and during trial and have been involved in many major IP litigation disputes in the past decade. Our teams have expertise conducting jury research and theory analysis and can transform complex issues into compelling visual graphics and presentations.
We work with litigation teams to help them best communicate their position on a case in a clear, concise, and effective manner so that they achieve the best possible outcome.
