"Producing a Blockbuster IP Litigation Hit, Epilogue: Closure to the Story," Inside Counsel
In the final article of their six-part series for InsideCounsel, Seth Trimble and Amanda Hyland provide ideas for limiting costs during an appeal and other litigation matters in the article, “Producing a Blockbuster IP Litigation Hit, Epilogue: Closure to the Story,” published on June 24, 2014. The article takes a look at next steps in determining how much the appeals process could cost your company if the opposing party is going to appeal your favorable verdict, or if you did not receive a favorable verdict. Trimble and Hyland suggest honestly evaluating your chances of success on appeal, and, if you or the opposing party appeals, choosing arguments carefully and working in a cooperative manner with opposing counsel to save costs. Finally, once litigation has fully concluded, they advise in-house and outside counsel to evaluate what worked and what didn’t, and if applicable, how to avoid the problem in the future.
