IPFC is proud to announce the recognition of Todd Schoettelkotte (President and Managing Director) and Jim Nawrocki (Co-Founder and Senior Advisor) as Highly Recommended experts in the IAM Patent 1000 ranking (click here)
As explained by IAM, “Economic analysis often plays a crucial role in IP litigation, whether relating to the question of reasonable efforts in licensing disputes, commercial success in disagreements over patentability or – most importantly – the quantum of damages to be paid for lost profits and as a reasonable royalty in infringement suits. Given the importance of patents as business assets and the significant sums at stake in compensation battles, choosing the right expert witness is imperative.“ The IAM Patent 1000 ranking is “commonly regarded as the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking to identify world-class, private practice expertise and leading expert witnesses.” IAM undertakes “an exhaustive qualitative research” in order to “identify outstanding firms and individuals across multiple jurisdictions.” IAM conducted nearly “1,800 interviews with numerous attorneys at law, patent attorneys and in-house counsel to gather market intelligence on the leading players in the field.”
Todd was identified as “the hardest-working guy out there – he is extremely diligent and thoughtful when forming his opinions, and can, as a result, staunchly defend them when it is time to testify. He has a very keen eye for detail and is able to consider, process and utilise large amounts of data to build comprehensive, compelling damages models.” Todd also “partners well with legal teams and doesn’t take anything attorneys say for granted” and “he follows changes in the law closely.”
Jim was recognized as being “superb on the stand – he explains his opinions clearly, is super credible and develops a wonderful rapport with juries,” and “offers his clients the full benefit of his nearly four decades of experience.”
Congratulations to Todd and Jim on this distinguished recognition!
