Webinar: Coordinating Global Patent Litigation
December 14, 2011
As patent litigation becomes increasingly multinational in scope, the importance of a coordinated global strategy is vital to a successful outcome. Litigants who have brought patent infringement cases in the U.S. frequently file suit in multiple European countries on corresponding European patents. As a result defendants must be prepared to defend themselves in jurisdictions with vastly different rules and judicial systems. It is absolutely essential when considering filing lawsuits in multiple countries, or when faced with lawsuits that have been brought in multiple countries, to have a coordinated strategy where counsel from each country work closely with each other and the client to deliver strong, powerful arguments.
The speakers for this Finnegan webinar have many years of experience coordinating and running multinational litigations. They will discuss some of the key elements of success, including:
• Deciding where and when to sue, and on what patents
• Selecting counsel in each country to maximize chances of success not only in that country but elsewhere
• Coordinating the cases, both strategically and logistically
• Selecting and working with experts
• Discovery, including the potential use of discovery from other jurisdictions (including the U.S.)
• The role of EPO proceedings
• Recent examples of how coordination of global litigations has resulted in success
This webinar is the third in Finnegan’s Fall 2011 series, “Strategic U.S. Patent Series for European Counsel.” We hope you are able to attend.
