Our firm was retained by the plaintiff’s counsel with respect to a patent infringement case in Canada involving an automotive part. The plaintiff, an automotive parts manufacturer alleged that a US automotive parts manufacturer infringed on its patent during the period 2006 to 2012.
We were retained to quantify the defendant’s profits to disgorge as well as determine the reasonable royalties that the plaintiff would be entitled to during the period that the patent was laid open to the public (i.e. before the patent was issued to the plaintiff). This matter settled between the parties without any formal hearing or trial.
