Richard Hung, Bita Rahebi, and Mark Whitaker authored an article for Law360 discussing trends and predictions intellectual property litigators should follow in the coming year.
“We predict substantive and procedural uncertainty in two key areas,” the authors wrote. “Substantively, there will be continued demands for clarity on Section 101 law, but no real clarity. Procedurally, recent U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Court mandamus decisions will cause patentees to reconsider their venue selections.”
They added: “The only certainty this year is that hybrid work will continue, as litigants grow even more accustomed to remote work and new variants temper our return to physical offices.”
