Biotech Patent Litigation

Jul 1, 2007

Conducted a six-panel, ThemeTesting® focus group study in San Francisco, California. The case centered on a patent dispute relating to complex technology used in certain medical devices. The case involved numerous and intricate arguments relating to infringement, validity, and damages. The ThemeTesting study assisted the trial team with determining which arguments and themes were likely to resonate with a San Francisco jury and with developing strategies for presenting the complex scientific and factual arguments in a manner that would be both comprehensible and persuasive. The results of the study contributed to the trial team’s decisions to develop particular themes during the remainder of discovery and, ultimately, contributed to the case valuation and the client’s favorable settlement of the matter.
