Strategies for Successfully Litigating Patent Cases Under the New and Ever-Changing Law


 The patent litigation landscape has changed dramatically in the past few years.  From the plaintiff's perspective, patent litigation is a game of survival, responding to a never-ending wave of challenges to the validity of the patents.  From the defendant's perspective, the game has gone from subtle maneuvering to full on frontal assault using multiple weapons and multiple forums.  Early stage Section 101 motions for judgment on the pleadings combined with IPR or CBM filings are becoming more the norm than the exception.  Section 112 Nautilus challenges and written description challenges are now part of most claim construction strategies for defendants.  Successful patent defense litigators are attacking early and often.  The price for an early settlement exit is dropping.  And at the end of the day, the risk has increased for the plaintiffs due to a lower bar threshold to recover attorneys fees.  Kevin Kirsch will be speaking regarding strategies for successfully defending and asserting patent cases under the new and ever-changing law.


Kevin Kirsch is the co-leader of BakerHostetler's national Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science Litigation team. Having represented companies in more than 100 patent litigation matters venued in more than a dozen different states, and registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Kevin is deeply familiar with the environment in which his clients operate, making him a strong advocate for their patent litigation needs. He also has extensive experience litigating trademark, copyright, trade dress, and trade secret claims.
