He has valued intellectual property and businesses in the context of licensing, sales, mergers, acquisitions, investments, tax matters, and litigation, as well as many other contexts. During his professional career, he has completed hundreds of valuations of intellectual property assets. Additionally, he has spoken on the topics of intellectual property valuation, litigation, licensing and tax matters throughout the U.S. and internationally.

In addition, he was retained by a Federal Monitor to set royalty rates for a company that was subject to a deferred prosecution agreement from the U.S. Department of Justice.
