This CLE course will guide patent counsel on the enforcement of patent rights globally. The panel will examine global patent litigation to protect IP rights in the worldwide marketplace. The panel will discuss current global litigation trends and the tools necessary when determining if, when, and where to bring infringement suits in various global jurisdictions. The panel will also guide patent attorneys on developing an international strategy.


Technology companies are increasingly facing competition on many fronts and recognizing the need to enforce their intellectual property across the globe. While bringing patent infringement cases in multiple jurisdictions may provide advantages, it can also result in unintended consequences.

Patent counsel must carefully weigh numerous factors such as costs, timing, and win rates before determining if, when and where to file suits. Further, patent counsel should perform an early case valuation and understand the legal framework and key trends in each jurisdiction under consideration. Collectively, these steps help inform decisions about filing a litigation and answer questions often raised by management. What are the risks of bringing a lawsuit in certain countries? How long will it take? What are the costs and potential remedies?

Listen as our authoritative panel of patent litigators from the U.S., Europe, and Canada examine how to enforce your patent rights globally. The panel will discuss current litigation data and trends, and the tools necessary to determine if, when and where to bring infringement suits in the most litigious jurisdictions in the world.
