Summary of Experience
Mr. Browning is an economist who specializes in applying microeconomic, statistical, and survey techniques to intellectual property (IP) disputes and antitrust issues. His recent case work has involved analyses of marketplace and survey data to assess the price, quantity, and profit impacts of various features of smartphones, tablets, and PCs. In antitrust matters, Mr. Browning has supported experts in analyzing proposed mergers, and in evaluating whether certain activities undertaken by firms and trade associations are anticompetitive. In IP matters, he has calculated damages in patent and copyright cases and evaluated the claimed fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) licensing terms for patents that have been asserted as essential to industry standards. His experience spans a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, smartphones, software, media, networking hardware, real estate, and automotive parts. Mr. Browning recently worked closely with several experts on behalf of Qualcomm against Apple, including one matter that culminated in a jury awarding the full amount of damages sought.
