Software, Computer Networking & Data Flows

Analysis Group’s work at the forefront of technology and information systems informs our comprehensive analyses of the software industry’s most complex challenges. We have examined the technical and economic impacts of monopolization and exclusionary practices in the software industry in antitrust class actions and private lawsuits; efficiencies in merger and acquisition cases; infringement of copyrights and trademarks, and patent strategy and valuation; misappropriation of trade secrets; contract disputes; transfer pricing matters; regulatory policies; work with government and regulatory agencies; and data breaches. 

Our interdisciplinary approach is based on a deep understanding of the software industry, to which we bring a breadth of experience using machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other analytical tools and methods, in order to provide our clients with the most successful recommendations and arguments. We have worked with leading software companies such as Meta, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo!, Nortel, Apple, Netflix, Oracle, and AT&T. 

Our experience in this area includes: 

  • Using a virtual simulation to analyze computer networking capabilities for a streaming service, in order to determine whether the technology used to code and transmit content was infringed 
  • Analyzing the availability, accessibility, and historical continuity of data from an online advertising firm to determine whether a method for using the data to determine damages could be employed on a class-wide basis  
  • Determining whether a software developer’s marketing study conformed to professional standard practices for independent, quantitative data-driven reports
