"Setting the Stage Early in IP Litigation to Control Expenses in Later Acts," InsideCounsel
On April 29, InsideCounsel published the article, “Setting the Stage Early in IP Litigation to Control Expenses in Later Acts,” by Coby Nixon and Seth Trimble. In their second article of a six-article series, Nixon and Trimble take a closer look at the groundwork needed to ensure ongoing litigation expenses are controllable and predictable. Their four tips include determining a company’s level and scope of exposure; exploring potential for early settlements; establishing long-term goals; and dealing with non-practicing entities in patent cases. These concepts are key for in-house counsel when structuring the early stages of IP litigation so that later stages are manageable.
