On June 10, InsideCounsel published the article, “Producing a Blockbuster IP Litigation Hit, Act 3: Managing the Showdown’s Cost,” by Coby Nixon and Amanda Hyland. The article provides ideas for trial that can significantly reduce litigation costs for in-house counsel. Nixon and Hyland suggest beginning with a simple theme, including thinking about what evidence and witnesses best fit within the theme. In addition, they advise in-house counsel to seek bifurcation where appropriate; work clearly with opposing counsel; drop unnecessary witnesses; and streamline the trial to avoid losing the attention or respect of the jury.
