Podcast: Practical implications of negotiating and drafting patent settlements

On The Pulse: Talks

19.03.2021 16 mins

Pat Treacy and Erik Müürsepp round up our podcast series on patent settlement agreements and competition law with a look at some practical considerations for those involved in the negotiation and drafting of patent settlement agreements.

Starting with common mistakes which may inadvertently lead to issues from a competition law perspective, Pat and Erik discuss some of the issues that frequently arise in the course of settlement negotiations and, drawing on their experience, how best to address these in a commercially acceptable and low risk manner.

This podcast is accompanied by an animation illustrating the topics covered which you can watch below.

A short set of key takeaways can be found in our ‘Ten things to think about when settling patent litigation‘ article. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss the practical application of the ten key points or any other points raised in this episode.
