Producing a blockbuster IP litigation hit, Epilogue: Closure to the story

Some cost-saving measures are highly effective at mitigating costs during the appeal process, regardless of whether you are the appellant or the appellee

The first five articles in this series discussed the importance of the initial casting of the IP litigation team, the first steps in laying the groundwork to ensure that ongoing litigation expenses are controllable and predictable, and some ideas for trial that can significantly reduce litigation costs. This article provides some ideas for limiting costs during an appeal and other litigation matters in the future.

Now that your trial is over and you have hopefully received a favorable jury verdict, you can relax if the other side is not going to appeal. However, if the opposing party is going to appeal your favorable verdict, or if you did not receive a favorable verdict, your next steps will be important in determining how much the appeals process could cost your company.
