Making Joint Defense and Indemnity Arrangements Benefit Rather than Hinder Patent Litigation Resolution and Costs [01:01:18]

Parallel patent infringement actions are often brought at the same time against multiple defendants. In addition, joint defense agreements are frequently 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. In addition, we will explore how such strategies may be implicated by any venue decision by the Supreme Court in the In re Heartland case.
