Patent Ethics: Litigation is a unique guide to the ethical issues arising in the course of the patent litigation process. By providing relevant rules and case law, it allows practitioners to identify ethical problems before they arise and to address them most effectively when they do. Patent Ethics: Litigation is the second of two volumes on patent ethics. This treatise is the first of its kind to combine rules and patent-specific cases with commentary by the author, which distills the author's own experience and expertise in ethics and patent litigation into effective practice strategies. Patent Ethics: Litigation covers many vital topics, including conflicts of interest specific to patent practice, pre-suit investigation and pleading requirements regarding inequitable conduct as well as infringement, prosecution bars, ethical issues concerning expert witnesses, and the risks that attend litigating a patent that a firm obtained for the plaintiff.
