Analysis Group Supports Collision Communications in Its Successful Breach of Contract Litigation

April 18, 2024

Analysis Group was retained on behalf of Collision Communications, a technology company specializing in cellular signal processing, in a breach of contract litigation against Nokia Solutions and Networks OY, a mobile technology company that produces cellular base stations. Collision claimed that the parties had an oral contract under which Nokia agreed to pay $20 million to license Collision’s noise-filtering technology for use in Nokia’s cellular base station and $3 million for Collision to begin integrating its technology with Nokia’s. After several months during which Collision claimed it performed its obligations under the parties’ agreement, Nokia allegedly attempted to alter the terms of the deal and then walked away from it entirely when Collision refused to do so.

An Analysis Group team led by Vice President Federico Temerlin and Manager Riccardo Marchingiglio supported Managing Principal Justin McLean, who submitted an expert report and testified at deposition and trial on damages.

A jury in the US District Court for the District of New Hampshire found that Nokia did enter into a binding $23 million contract and then breached it. Collision was awarded the full $23 million in damages it requested – an outcome supported by Mr. McLean’s testimony and damages calculation.
