Read more about Morrison & Foerster’s win on behalf of client Washington University in its patent valuation dispute with The University of Wisconsin in this feature from, “Skilled in the Art: Higher Education Meets Lower Contract Ethics” (subscription required). The firm’s litigation team was led by Michael A. Jacobs and included Christopher L. Robinson and Elizabeth Ann Patterson.

“There are basically zero reported cases involving this kind of inter-university scenario,” Mr. Jacobs said. With academic researcher mobility on the rise, inter-institutional agreements covering patent rights are going to become “more and more important.”
