Litigation Support

Chipworks helps patent litigators tell a case winning story – by providing evidence of infringement that will stand up to court scrutiny, fact witness services to support the technical merits of your position, as well as prior art/prior use defense. We can also support your discovery needs, by helping to sort and identify relevant technical documents.

Produce compelling evidence of infringement

  • We document evidence of infringement in the form of claim charts. These can be provided as court ready or a draft for your own use, and are available in multiple languages, including Japanese and Chinese
  • In order to minimize the need for custom work and save time, we apply any existing analysis we have first
  • When custom analysis is required, we can combine multiple analysis techniques (e.g., circuit and systems) to find more hits and uncover hard to detect elements
  • Given the urgency of litigation and the value of your time, Chipworks can accommodate urgent requests

Receive fact witness support
