Article One Partners Hosts Inaugural IP Summit In Napa Valley; New Litigation Avoidance Service Launched

Attending executives were provided a forum for discussing many industry-wide patent disputes and for exploring collaborative means to avoiding costly patent litigation.

"We set out to drive collaboration among our client base and other leaders in the IP industry, and the dynamic insights of attendees exceeded our expectations. There was immediate interest in collaborating on joint defense against patent infringement claims, and uniting on defense and deterrence of the growing problem of patent litigation across multiple defendants," said Cheryl Milone, CEO and founder of Article One Partners. "When the Napa Summit concluded, the group voiced an interest in transitioning from discussion to execution. So we're establishing the Collaboration Litigation Defense Group that will extend this collaboration year-round in addition to the annual Summit. Article One Partners is also launching our new Litigation Avoidance Service to help clients leverage the millions of Article One Partners Researchers around the world who can bring new evidence of patent validity to light."

Through periodic meetings, the new Collaboration Litigation Defense Group will continue discussions on collaboration, joint defense, common legal counsel, litigation insurance, and other key topics and defense tactics. Key industry executives are the founding members of the group and many in attendance at the Summit requested participation in the group.

Article One Partners Launches New Litigation Avoidance Service

Article One Partners announced the launch of Litigation Avoidance, its new patent research service. Leveraging the global reach and proven success of Article One Partners' research community, Litigation Avoidance will help companies avoid patent litigation by identifying, analyzing, and acting on patents of dubious quality. The offering focuses on proactive action related to industry patents rather than responding solely to litigation assertions. Industry members can gain the benefit of evidence gathered by Article One Partners' global community. However, these members can continue to take individual action, including settlement or negotiation, based on individual relationship between parties in pre- or post-litigation contexts.
