In industries built on innovation, an understanding of intellectual property and its protection should be embedded into the product development process to improve R&D effectiveness, reduce risk of patent infringement and strengthen the company’s patent portfolio. Whether corporate strategy dictates a defensive or assertive stance on the use of intellectual property, the legal department often requires support from outside counsel and technical experts to achieve its mandate.
Both legal staff and outside counsel recognize that in patent infringement cases, access to public patent information is not enough. Detailed technical analysis is needed to provide case material for defensive or assertive patent purposes – the kind of hard, objective evidence of use that can drive successful patent compensation and cross-licensing negotiations. However, internal resources may not be available or qualified for the kind of time-sensitive, in-depth technical analysis demanded by business-critical patent projects. They may also not have access to parts or documentation necessary to demonstrate “evidence of use”. In other situations, legal advisors require support to help their clients evolve to a more assertive stance on IP for licensing and competitive purposes.
