What are patent claims?
A patent is a right given to an inventor that allows them, for a limited time, to prohibit others from making, selling, or using their invention. But they also have to turn to the courts in order for a patent holder to secure fair and proper value for their property rights. Patent holders will face big, well-capitalized defendants here who have limitless resources to battle claims for litigation. Not only would these defendants aggressively contest in court the charges of infringement and the validity of the patent, but they and other third parties can also bring numerous challenges to the validity of the patent before the Patent and Trademark Office of the United States of America.
These variables mean that patent litigation is often riskier and more costly than other litigation forms. This makes patent litigation particularly well-suited to third-party support, which provides a claimant with the tools required to pursue a case to its conclusion while mitigating some of the risk along the way.
How much do patent claims cost?
Patent cases are costly. IP is a rapidly shifting area, often spanning several jurisdictions and countries, where newly fought cases can set precedents that enable lawyers to change gears and develop new attack plans, but all come with costs. Fees in this range make cases worth managing, but many lawyers and firms would need an inflow of capital to help continue business as normal.
How does funding for patent litigation help?
Litigation funding is a powerful weapon in the legal battle against well-capitalized defendants. Regardless of what form of patent infringement a lawyer or corporation is battling against or whether its client is fighting it out in a courtroom or a deposition, funding for patent litigation offers a proven way for businesses to obtain an advance on projected payments resulting from their lawsuit.
What can the capital be used for?
Litigation funds may be used to cover different case-fighting expenses or to help the company's operating costs, thus ensuring sustained growth and performance.
