Winston & Strawn Partners Samantha Lerner and Brian Ferguson have contributed to The Sedona Conference Working Group Series' recently published Commentary on Patent Litigation Best Practices: Streamlining Lower-Value Patent Cases Chapter.

The publication proposes a streamlined program that, if opted into by both parties, would resolve patent disputes faster and more cost-effectively, and facilitate early settlements. As a result, thousands of patent cases could be eligible for and benefit from the program every year.

The series is one of the Working Group commentaries published by The Sedona Conference, a 501(c)(3) research and educational institute dedicated to the advanced study of law and policy in the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation, intellectual property, data security, and privacy liability.
