Patent litigation is constantly evolving, with changes in how – and in what courts – competitors and non-practicing entities (NPEs) engage in offensive and defensive litigation. In the early 2020s, filings before the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board have evened out, while high-volume NPEs seem to be leading the federal litigation charge.
AEON Law’s work to give clients a strong litigation position begins well before litigation, identifying patentable inventions and crafting solid patent claims that hold up in court and before the PTAB.
Our goal in any litigation or administrative proceeding is to get our clients to their business objectives as efficiently as possible. From the beginning, we work to identify the optimal outcome and prepare the strategy that fits the client’s goals. While we have decades of trial experience, we also help our clients resolve disputes through settlement, mediation, and arbitration.
The best strategy might include motion practice in federal court, challenging or defending a patent in PTAB Inter Partes Review or Post-Grant Review, or – often – some combination thereof. We represent a mix of plaintiffs and defendants, and our patent prosecution experience also helps us take a big-picture, business-oriented approach to litigation.
AEON Law also can offer contingent fee arrangements. This approach keeps costs predictable and strategies efficient.
During the heat of litigation, it can be difficult to keep business objectives at the forefront. AEON Law’s business-focused approach to litigation helps clients maintain a strong market position and intellectual property rights.
