Protecting yourself against future patent litigation

John Cronin, Managing Director and Chairman is the author of “Protecting yourself against future patent litigation“.

If you are reading this, it’s likely you are now involved in a patent litigation. It may be that this is your first patent litigation, and everything is new territory for you. Worse, it could be that this is another patent litigation and you’re frustrated, as you know it takes away valuable time, it’s disruptive to the business, and takes money. You may have fewer options than others in your same situation because the plaintiff is an NPE (Non-practicing entity), in which case, a countersuit is not possible. It is also very likely, if you’re reading this paper, that you have already engaged a law firm to help you with your case. This paper deals with companies in this predicament and how to enhance their position through various approaches to reduce risk.
