Patent Litigation Management

Successful management of patent litigation and licensing is what we have done for over 10 years at Acacia Research, one of the nation’s largest and earliest innovators in patent licensing. We have engaged and managed some of the best litigation law firms, PTAB/IPR specialists, expert witnesses/subject matter experts, and technical/reverse engineering professionals. We view the litigation and licensing campaign as an innovative program management process with well-defined milestones and objectives attached to a specific timeline.


At Validity, we stress test the portfolio to identify the key weaknesses and flaws in the patent claims and specifications. Before litigation is even started, this information is used to formulate the campaign strategy and, if done well, identifies the defendant’s most likely defenses, giving us a tactical advantage. Associated with many campaigns, IPRs are a common defendant tactic initiated after the America Invents Act. We have managed the patent owner defense through many IPR/PTAB processes, applying the same analytical analysis to setting defensive strategies that we do for the primary licensing campaign.


For our clients, we are committed to use our considerable skills to manage and optimize any licensing or monetization campaigns that arise from our client’s portfolios.
