About This Program

Are you using empirical evidence or educated guesses? The use of surveys in damages estimations, particularly in intellectual property disputes, can be a powerful tool, but also easy to misuse. By understanding key judiciary and industry guidelines regarding the design and execution of surveys you can strengthen your position and avoid blunders. Experts Larry Chiagouris and Leon Kaplan will instruct you on survey fundamentals and also highlight special topics that can help assure a successful outcome. A detailed case study will give you the confidence to institute these best practices and guiding principles in your next damages calculation assignment.
