Patent Arbitration

Share on:

About the Course:

Patent arbitration is a popular form of alternative dispute resolution. Arbitration is substantially less expensive than patent litigation and resolution is achieved more expeditiously. Parties to disputes have more discretion in choosing qualified arbitrators than in selecting judges or juries. Also, in contrast to litigating patents, arbitration offers confidentiality.

However, serious consideration should be given before being bound by arbitration. Arbitration usually provides for less discovery and agreements reached through arbitration are non-appealable.

Course Length: Approx. 1.5 hours
