A concise—yet thorough—description of every stage of a patent case
Patent litigation has assumed a pivotal role in today's global economy. In response to the increased prominence of patents, the Complex Litigation Committee of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) has authored a manual that provides a balanced view of the issues in each phase of a patent case for judges and lawyers. Anatomy of a Patent Case is a concise yet substantial treatise that expertly covers all steps required to bring a patent case to trial, and the key elements that make such litigation unique.
Anatomy of a Patent Case specifically addresses the complex technical, procedural, and legal issues inherent in a patent lawsuit that are not usually found in other types of civil litigation. It is limited to the unique characteristics of patent litigation and has been added to the Federal Judicial Center's resource library for district court judges and their law clerks. The handbook provides concise coverage of the fundamentals, effective lessons from the most significant cases, and essential insights from leading experts and judges.
