Joint Defense and Indemnification in Patent Litigation – How to Work with Others in the Same or a Sunken Boat [01:01:24]

Parallel patent infringement actions are often brought at the same time against multiple defendants. Joint defense agreements are often entered into for efficiency and consistency in defending the actions. However, there are negatives as well as positives and numerous possible pitfalls in entering into joint defense arrangements. This session will discuss the legal and practical considerations of working efficiently with co-defendants and their counsel, including negotiating joint defense agreements; managing costs and responsibilities among numerous parties where positions may conflict; strategies for when to take the lead and when to ride the wave; and managing related issues of indemnification.
