From pre-litigation to settlement, we work with clients involved in court cases, post grant proceedings and administrative hearings to help develop and support the strongest possible litigation strategy. Our experts analyze prior art, draft infringement contentions, review copious source code and technical documents, ghost-draft the substantive prior art technical analysis for your IPR or expert report, appraise opposition expert reports, and provide support for expert witness testimony. PatBak backs your legal team every step of the way through the duration of your patent litigation to provide the technical and patent analytics support you need to evaluate, construct and plead your case.
What our clients (Law Firms) say:

"PatBak was great. They brought in a couple of code reviewers who sat down and went through ****’s, ****’s, and ****’s code in great detail, and provided an excellent analysis that we used to help settle the case. PatBak was instrumental in our getting an expedited resolution to this case. They have done several projects for us with excellence but they truly hit it out of the park with this one"

Expert reports can "make or break" the case and are often very time consuming. Using PatBak's services makes this part of the process much more efficient and affordable. We can ease the workload for experts by performing document review, technical report drafting or source code review for them. We act as testifying experts back office and assist them in the legwork and analysis needed to support their expert reports by gathering and compiling the key infringement evidence identified from the technical documentation and source code review. As the testifying expert’s back office support, we also help them present those facts in his or her report and can in fact ghost-draft the substantive prior art technical analysis for the report.
Sooner or later defendants are almost always going to need a technical expert (or two), and sooner is generally much better than later. PatBak can start supporting your expert early in the case and do the legwork and analysis to help the expert identify and articulate non-infringement and/or invalidity theories, thus helping to shape the defense and discovery strategy from the very beginning. PatBak can act as your testifying technical expert’s back office through the litigation life cycle. As the testifying expert’s back office support, that can mean down to down to helping the technical expert present the key non-infringement facts identified from the technical documentation into his or her report.
