FIGHTING A PATENT TROLL LAWSUIT

Communications supporting CLS’s landmark case

Chatsworth has extensive expertise in litigation support – managing the communication process during the course of any legal dispute or adjudicatory processing to protect the client’s reputation.

We provided strategic advisory and support to CLS Bank around its landmark US Supreme Court case, Alice Corp. vs CLS Bank, and subsequent unanimous ruling in favour of CLS. The case had significant ramifications for the global financial system and technology industry, with the ruling expected to set a major precedent affecting patent law and the global software industry.

We worked closely with in-house and external counsel, leveraging our media relationships to counteract negative publicity, interpret often complex legal issues and ensure our CLS’s view as represented accurately and intelligently, to help swing the compass needle their way.
