Many Attorneys who litigate Intellectual Property disputes are searching for a qualified Arbitrator or Mediator who is an expert in IP law, is accustomed to technical evidence, and can hold the appropriate Hearing(s) in a timely manner.
You don’t need to run the risk of getting a Judge, an Arbitrator, or a Mediator who does not understand Intellectual Property law and the many steps involved in commercializing technology. You also don’t need to have the problems that come along with litigation in the public court system. You can hire a qualified Arbitrator or Mediator to conduct a Hearing to your specifications. You can significantly limit additional risks by agreeing with opposing counsel on many aspects of the Hearing(s). Here are a few examples of things that can be specified:
*The measures that both parties will use to insure confidentiality.
*The boundaries of the Arbitration Award, including minimum and maximum damages awarded, whether the Award is reasoned or not, etc.
*Who may attend the Hearing(s).
*How many technical experts and witnesses each side may present, in what order, etc.
*How long written submissions and oral arguments will be.
*How long the Arbitrator(s) will have to render an Award.
