Analysis Group has deep experience with the technology of a wide array of hardware products. We bring this expertise to bear in technology litigation matters and in economics- and finance-related cases in which a sophisticated knowledge of the technical aspect of hardware is essential. Our capability in this area has been a critical asset in matters dealing with the valuation of intellectual property, liability and damages arguments in antitrust cases, commercial disputes, and tax and transfer pricing matters, including litigation involving regulatory agencies and private companies.
