Apple v. Samsung Trial (May 2014): Professor Judith Chevalier
Analysis Group and academic affiliate Judith Chevalier of the Yale School of Management were retained by Samsung Electronics and its counsel, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, to provide consulting and expert witness services in this patent infringement case widely covered in major media outlets. Professor Chevalier's testimony addressed consumer demand for smartphones and tablets, the role played by the functionalities associated with Apple's patents, and the appropriate damages remedy used in the dispute. She testified that the functionalities associated with Apple's patents had no discernible impact on consumer demand for Samsung's smartphones and tablets, and determined that reasonable royalties were an appropriate remedy. After finding infringement, a San Jose, California jury ordered Samsung to pay $119.6 million in damages, far short of the $2.2 billion sought by Apple.
Managing Principals T. Christopher Borek and Justin McLean led the Analysis Group case team, which included President and CEO Martha Samuelson and Vice Presidents John Browning, Peter Hess, Lisa Pinheiro, and Jimmy Royer.
