How do I get intellectual property financing?
This is an easy one to answer. When we get a submission we send it off to many of the underwriters that we use, then they look at the case to see how strong it is and the probability of a successful verdict. Since litigation financing for this is very risky is does take some time to do this, especially since it is non recourse (recourse is sometimes the case also). In deciding if patent litigation funding is possible some things may be required from you to get approval.
