Topics of Discussions


Patent cases usually involve large volumes of electronically stored information (ESI). The process of obtaining a patent requires companies to produce and maintain large amounts of data. Additionally, discoverable ESI related to a patent may stretch back many years or subject to previous lawsuits. This session, Kroll Ontrack will discuss how to streamline ESI production and reduce the cost of eDiscovery

Cross-Departmental Data:

ESI associated with a patent case can derive from several areas within a particular company. In many instances, in-house lawyers must not only sift through the dense technical documentation generated by a company’s engineering or manufacturing team, but also review material produced by the other divisions. This Session, Kroll ontrack will provide a step by step EDRM process and show you how to work effectively with other department with collecting data

Local Patent Rules:

Like all civil matters, patent litigation is governed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). However, some jurisdictions have adopted specific rules regarding patent litigation that have significant e-discovery implications. This session explore local rules and consider how they stand to impact the e-discovery process.


The question of when the obligation to preserve is triggered is one of the most vexing issues in e-discovery. This can be especially true in patent litigation. According to the FRCP, the duty to preserve is triggered when litigation is reasonably foreseeable. There are obvious trigger events – complaints, summons, notice of investigation – but in patent litigation the trigger events can be unclear since patents are so frequently challenged and so fervently protected. Does the filing for the patent, or the issuance of the patent represent a trigger point? Can a company wait until someone challenges for infringement?
