What is Patent Litigation Financing?
Patent litigation also know as IP, is why patent litigation financing is sometimes needed, because this is usually complicated and expensive. With that attorneys that have a specialty in IP law know this and with this when attorneys and plaintiffs find out that Verum Funding specialize in patent litigation funding they usually have some questions.
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 qualified and or approved.
What Is The Qualification Process?
Before going to diligence these are some questions that need to be answered to be considered for patent litigation funding.
- Patents that are part of the case and or cases.
- Would be defendants in the case.
- What is the needed amount of money for a successful verdict?
- Estimate of the trial damages.
- Experts that are needed for the case.
- Is it a patent or a design infringement or is a trade secret, copyright, or trademark issue?
Yes there are a lot of items that are needed but commercial IP funding but that is because there is usually a good amount of money that is needed for non recourse IP financing, in both soft and hard IP. Most firms in the past would take an IP case on full contingency but in today’s environment that is a thing of the past. Thus, there is commercial IP litigation financing.
