Developing a Patent Defense Strategy

Patent Assertion Risk Assessment and Scoring of Potential Plaintiffs

Applying over 20 years of experience in supporting clients in patent licensing and litigation defense, TechPats has developed a methodology for assessing risk of patent assertion and a scoring system to identify the patent holders most likely to assert patents against an operating company.

Such information provides our clients with an important input to building a proactive patent defense strategy.

The scoring system is based on two main criteria assessed for each of the patent holders considered as being adversaries to the Client:

Litigation Score:

  • Litigation Intensity in the Past 10 Years
  • Accused Product(s) Type
  • Accused Product(s) Standards
  • Litigation Licensing Strategy and Tactics
  • AssertionTargets and Types

Patent Position Score:

  • Patents Relevant to Client’s Product(s) that were Litigated and Still in Force
  • Patents Not Litigated but Relevant to Client’s Product(s)
  • R&D Efforts likely to Produce New Inventions
  • Acquisition of Patents
