Intellectual Property Experts Recognized Among World's Leading Patent Professionals


Ocean Tomo, a part of J.S. Held, intellectual property experts are recognized among the world's leading patent professionals by IAM.

JERICHO, N.Y., June 18, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Global consulting firm J.S. Held, proudly celebrating 50 transformative years, announces the recognition of seven Ocean Tomo intellectual property damages and business licensing practice experts. The IAM Patent 1000 is the "definitive 'go-to' resource for those seeking to identify world-class, private practice patent expertise and leading expert witnesses."

With the support of more than 1,000 J.S. Held technical and scientific experts, Ocean Tomo presents a unique, industry-leading foundation for addressing intangible assets.

IAM reports, "Ocean Tomo, a part of J.S. Held, is 'a recognised leader in IP damage expert engagements for patent, trademark, trade secret, and false advertising matters', and is trusted by many for insight into IP valuation, both in and out of the courtroom." Based on "feedback from peers and clients" Joanne Johnson and Shelly Irvine join the IAM Patent 1000 for the first time, alongside Dan Lindsay, Brian Napper, Todd Schoettelkotte, Bryan Van Uden, and Shirley Webster.

IAM's extensive research process yielded numerous acknowledgments from clients and peers for members of the Ocean Tomo IP Disputes team, including:

"well positioned to offer expert opinions, through testimony and advice, on the value of intellectual property and the economic issues resulting from its exploitation or infringement"

"has testified for and advised on IP issues related to a wide array of industries and his talents extend to advising on patent licensing agreements"

"a highly effective damages expert in patent cases...a quick study and a compelling presence on the stand."

"brilliant economic mind and has been instrumental in helping us formulate damages strategies, implementing those strategies into expert reports and assisting us at trial or before trial to achieve good settlements."

"has a strong knowledge of patent damages law and was a very helpful resource in preparing to depose the plaintiff's damages expert"

"well suited for high-stakes, bet-the-company IP matters"

"well versed in economic principles of IP damage modelling"

"comes to well-reasoned and well-supported conclusions"

"holds up exceedingly well to cross-examination based on superior intellect and careful application of recognised methodology"

With a client list that is evenly balanced between plaintiffs and defendants, Ocean Tomo financial testimony professionals have industry-leading experience across all types of disputes and are particularly skilled in the determination of damages in matters involving intellectual property (IP). Testifying experts have decades of litigation analysis experience, benefiting clients when they evaluate complex financial data, qualitative facts, supporting testimony, and damages-related case law. Ocean Tomo experts are routinely qualified in U.S. District Courts, U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, U.S. Tax Court, U.S. Court of Federal Claims, state courts, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Patent Trial and Appeal Board, international courts, and arbitration tribunals on questions relating to intellectual property economics. Ocean Tomo experts are known for a "teaching" ? as opposed to "telling" ? approach of testimony. Rather than only providing a judge or jury with an opinion, experts communicate the key facts and relevant theories in a clear and logical manner.

Sharing the announcement on the Ocean Tomo Insights blog, Senior Managing Director and Ocean Tomo co-founder, James E. Malackowski notes: "For more than two years, Ocean Tomo has been an important part of J.S. Held. Together, both our IP team and the scope of our service offerings has grown. With the support of more than 1,000 J.S. Held technical and scientific experts, Ocean Tomo presents a unique, industry-leading foundation for addressing intangible assets."
