Tackling Inbound Patent Assertion


22 February 2022

How do you respond to patent litigation?

It’s an event that can come out of the blue but one that can be catastrophic to the business. Being able to respond quickly and efficiently when patent litigation comes knocking is critical to minimising losses. With Cipher you can assess the relevance of large portfolios and be equipped with an evidence based response to the threat.

Our training uses Cipher’s recently launched Universal Technology Taxonomy to explore how you can put yourself on the front foot and be prepared.

The training will look at the following key areas:

  • How to understand how many NPEs hold assets relevant to your portfolio and how much that technology is litigated
  • How to perform that analysis but for a competitor of interest
  • How to respond if you’re asserted against by understanding to what degree relevant assets are a risk to you
  • How to calculate the appropriate royalties, cross license or open up a negotiation based on your findings.
