How big are these circular light brown spots. Does the grass die entirely?

More info required I'm afraid, assuming you don't have a dog. When you say 'lawn specialists' what diagnosis did these specialists make, and exactly what treatments have you already tried?
Second, a photo might be helpful.
Third, is your soil light and sandy, or heavy clay?
Fourth, is the lawn you have luxury turf, or utility, ordinary grade?
Fifth, what maintenance regime do you usually carry out during a year, including feeding/weeding, etc?

It could be a vixen fox, they pee in neat round circles at certain times of year when attracting a male! It happens here, they are a pest.

Also, are these spots in the same locations every year? Or do they "move around"?

I think Patchy has been eaten by one of these light brown spots!
