At Greenfield Advisors, we are asked by clients to tackle very complex real estate issues. These issues are not limited to physical assets or interests related to real estate; sometimes we tackle issues related to real estate technology. This includes patents, trade secrets, and source code.
For example, our team of economists, statisticians, and programmers have built AVMs and have consulted on multiple assignments in the space. Our principals have consulted on several patent infringement cases and provided expert witness testimony. Our experience building these technologies allows us to be comfortable determining whether a competitor’s product infringes on a patent, whether an invention was obvious, and whether one performs better than the other.
