April 7, 2021 Webinar CLE: Finding the “Source of Truth”: How to Obtain Technical Evidence in Software Cases

Topic:   Finding the “Source of Truth”: How to Obtain Technical Evidence in Software Cases

 Speakers: Please join us as speakers Adam Starr and Dan DiCicco give a presentation on the discovery of technical software data. Companies working within the software industry use specialized tools to document and manage their processes. These tools are often rich sources of valuable information in technical cases. This CLE discusses techniques to identify, extract, review, and use this information in discovery and beyond.   

Adam Starr, Shareholder, Markowitz Herbold

Adam is the co-chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property and Software and Technology groups. He has particular experience representing startups, creators, and inventors in intellectual property and royalty disputes. He focuses on protecting innovators and thought leaders against theft of their intellectual property.

Adam is well-versed in the tools of development and design, including GitHub, JIRA, and Confluence, and brings a litigation advantage and significant cost savings to his clients. Similarly, he has used his understanding of startup business models (including the valuation, acquisition, and sales process) to create damages models based on revenue multipliers, resulting in greater recovery for his clients, instead of just relying on traditional lost profit principles.

Dan DiCicco, Of Counsel, Markowitz Herbold

Dan is a trial attorney who both defends claims and pursues civil litigation on behalf of companies with complex legal disputes. He has a particular emphasis on software and hardware intellectual property litigation. From software companies to apparel manufacturers to construction companies and large regional car dealerships, he has represented all types and sizes of companies in Oregon and across the country.

Dan has deep expertise in the software and technology industries. His background as a computer scientist and the founder of video game studio Zero Sum Games gives him valuable insight and perspective. Dan created the popular “StarDrive” video game series and partnered with major entertainment and technology companies to create high-tech brand experiences at installations across the globe.
