Presented by

R. David Donoghue, Partner & IP Litigator, Holland & Knight

About this talk

David Donoghue draws on his IP litigation experience, as both outside counsel and in-house counsel for a Fortune 100 company, to identify ways to reduce what too often become massive litigation fees and expenses while actually improving the effectiveness of your legal team. Mr. Donoghue looks at the relationship of inside and outside counsel and identifies specific ways to optimize that relationship to focus costs on action items that promote your business needs and, by doing that, to increase your legal team's focus on the business drivers and goals in the case instead of a generic plan to "win" the case. Mr. Donoghue also pulls the curtain back on joint defense groups and identifies straightforward techniques for managing joint defense groups in order to avoid unnecessary expenses while deriving the synergy expected from the groups. Mr. Donoghue also identifies ways to manage and control a discovery process that too often takes on a life of its own. Finally, Mr. Donoghue will answer participants questions to identify solutions focused upon your specific needs.
