Chris Bakewell and Mark Gallagher Recognized as Top Economic Expert Witnesses in IAM Patent 1000

Duff & Phelps is pleased to announce that Chris Bakewell and Mark Gallagher, managing directors in the Disputes and Investigations practice, have been recognized as top economic expert witnesses in the United States in Intellectual Asset Management ("IAM") magazine's Patent 1000  – The World's Leading Patent Professionals 2015 guide. We congratulate Chris and Mark on this achievement for the second consecutive year.

The guide hails Chris Bakewell as “one of the most popular testifying experts around” and quotes one lawyer, “echoing the opinion of many,” saying, “If I could use him every time, I would. Juries find him accessible and he delivers his analyses with great conviction. He won’t give you cookie-cutter advice, but is creative in his thinking. He knows where the law has been and where it’s going.”

The guide praises Mark Gallagher as “knowledgeable and articulate,” and a “standout,” also noting that “intellectual property has long been a central pillar of his investigative accounting practice.”
Many thanks to our clients and peers for their support and positive feedback.
