Raise your business to the next level with groundbreaking strategy, fresh technologies and innovation advisors that help drive business value.
Software analysis, design and architecture
Cutting edge software development can often use an experienced eye on a consulting basis. We’ve built large scale communications, web and consumer electronics systems, and have scaled out teams and processes to support worldwide launches of complex systems. Rather than reinventing the wheel, engaging an expert can be a cost-effective way to help build out a world-class engineering organization that creates realistic milestones and delivers on time.
Technical due diligence supporting venture capital, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, and IP portfolio acquisition. Intellectual property evaluation, patent portfolio valuation, and commercial value evaluation.
We serve the legal community with testifying expert witness services in cases of patent infringement, invalidity, breach of contract, damages assessment, and more. We serve both defendants and plaintiffs with local presence in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. Services include source code analysis, deposition, trial testimony and second chair.
