IP Litigation: A Business Tool to Help Your Company Stay On Top

September 28, 2010

Your company has invested heavily in its R&D, developed a solid patent strategy, and is gaining momentum in the market. With your strategy in place, it is time to ask important questions about how to enforce your patents. What happens when a competitor copies your successful technology and you are forced to go to court to stop the infringement on your patent? Or, what happens when a competitor claims that your own technology - patented or not - infringes its patent and files a court action against your company?

Just as the successful implementation of procedures and information systems is essential when identifying critical technology and obtaining patents, the same is true for patent litigation. Key strategic planning and preparation will give you a competitive advantage in litigation and will enhance the odds of a successful cost-efficient result from litigation, whether through settlement or trial. In short, instead of viewing patent litigation as a minefield of endless costs and constant problems, view it as another business tool to help your company stay on top.

Join Brian Moriarty, Principal at Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds, Concord, Massachusetts, a former Federal Prosecutor, a registered patent attorney and veteran patent trial attorney, for a discussion of practical and cost-efficient enforcement of your Intellectual Property:

  • E-discovery in Patent Litigation: How to do it right the first time!
  • Tips and tactics for cost effective patent litigation: Keep your eye on the bull's-eye, and avoid distractions
  • Stay focused and efficient: Yet still be prepared for patent infringement jury trials or to force a favorable settlement short of trial
