Description:

A large company is infringing your intellectual property. You met with them, but they offered you a tiny licensing fee that does not reflect the value of your IP. If you sue, they will hire a big law firm to fight you at every step. Do you need to hire your own big firm? If you hire a small, contingency-fee firm, will this put you at a disadvantage? This webinar will explain why this worry is based on fundamental misperceptions about the nature of litigation. In reality, a small firm that is optimized for winning (not for billing hours) isn’t the underdog in litigating your case; it is the odds-on favorite. To see why, we will discuss the battle of David vs. Goliath (as described by Malcolm Gladwell), research from leading experts that study team size and professional performance, and examples from real cases.
