From patent litigation, trademark appeals and copyright infringement, to critical interlocutory proceedings and appeals to the Federal Court of Appeal, the ins and outs of intellectual property (IP) litigation can be challenging to master. Thankfully, for those who need to navigate this ever-shifting landscape, there's a brand new publication: Intellectual Property Litigation: Forms and Precedents.

Featuring more than 25 chapters written by IP practitioners who are experts in their field, this volume promises to become an invaluable addition to the libraries of IP lawyers across the country.

Features and Benefits
Intellectual Property Litigation: Forms and Precedents provides a practical collection of precedents and checklists for litigating IP-related disputes along with extensive commentary devoted to the law and practice of IP litigation. The text was authored by a team of over 25 leading intellectual property and commercial litigators led by Paul Lomic of Lomic Law and is divided into two parts. The first section offers insightful commentary as well as useful checklists and precedents for cases on the merits, while the second part deals with the procedural aspects of IP litigation, including case management, bringing motions and conducting e-discovery.

Since it offers forms and precedents for a wide range of IP-related disputes, this book will be indispensable to IP lawyers who will benefit from:

  • Expert commentary, checklists and templates that will help them save time and money as they won't have to start drafting from scratch
  • The ability to access handy, reliable reference materials quickly and easily
  • Digital versions of the precedents included in the book
  • The expertise of the authors – more than 25 seasoned IP practitioners have contributed their considerable knowledge and experience
  • Comprehensive coverage that includes copyright, trademarks, patents and industrial design
  • Chapters focused on critical interlocutory proceedings, including motions to amend pleadings, motions for a confidentiality order, motions to inspect documents or property, and motions to appeal an order of a prothonotary

Valuable resource

Intellectual Property Litigation: Forms and Precedents will be an especially useful reference for anyone interested in or representing clients in IP-related disputes, including IP lawyers, litigators and government lawyers (particularly those working in IP areas such as the Patent Office). Law libraries should also stock this book as lawyers, students and judges will find its content valuable.
