Patent Troll Litigation is Pervasive and Costly

Many of your clients don’t understand their vulnerability to patent infringement lawsuits. In fact, most of them are more at risk than they realize. Here is some background to prime you for client discussions.

  • Every year, more than 1,500 companies are sued by a patent troll for the first time.
  • Patent troll litigation is expensive to resolve. Cases can cost multiple millions, even for emerging growth companies.
  • The litigation is complex and time consuming—often taking as long as 18 months—costing not only money, but also company resources and executive time.
