Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Expert Witnesses

Dr Cox is chair of NERA’s intellectual property practice. He has extensive experience testifying in federal court, state court, US and international arbitrations, and before utility commissions. In arbitrations, he has appeared before the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), the American Arbitration Association (AAA), and the Japan Commercial Arbitration Association (JCAA). His previous positions include visiting economist at MIT’s energy laboratory.

In intellectual property matters, Dr Cox has testified on a wide variety of patent issues in the semiconductor, biotechnology, telecommunications, consumer product and other industries. He has also testified on trademark, copyright and trade secret matters. For example, he testified in Delaware District Court in a matter involving alleged theft of trade secrets and false advertising in the manufacture and sale of golf balls. He was retained by Texas Instruments in a New Jersey patent case, which resulted in a jury award of US$112 million to Texas Instruments. He has also testified in matters related to standards and patent pools.

Antitrust issues on which Dr Cox has testified include allegations of price fixing of semiconductors and professional services, price manipulation in natural gas markets, attempts to monopolise in the credit card and other industries, Robinson-Patman matters, the competitiveness of crude oil and product pipeline services, allegations of anticompetitive licensing, and the competitive consequences of a major electric utility merger. He has examined and provided economic advice on a wide array of competition issues, including vertical restraints in gasoline retailing, allegations of crude oil price fixing, the competitive consequences of mergers in several industries, and the economic costs of restraints imposed on a “dominant” telecommunications carrier.

WWL says: Alan Cox impresses peers with his vast testifying experience and intricate knowledge of IP-related disputes.
