The Intellectual Property Practice Group at JAMS was formed in response to the growing number of IP disputes and the need for innovative methods to resolve them. JAMS has substantial Intellectual Property experience that sets us apart from other providers. The IP panel has significant practice area depth with a solid understanding of the law and the associated complex technology.
JAMS’ neutrals have experience handling all types of IP disputes, including patent, copyright and trademark infringement, trade secret theft disputes, and trade dress disputes. Their extensive knowledge includes handling matters involving patent validity challenges as well as international trade commission Section 337 investigations. JAMS’ neutrals also possess an in-depth understanding of technology that is key to resolving intellectual property disputes, including biotechnology and life sciences, medical devices, semiconductors, telecommunications, internet and e-commerce, software, hardware, computer and industrial equipment.
Our Deep Federal Bench: In addition to neutrals that practiced extensively in all areas of IP law, JAMS has over 25 retired federal judges with significant experience in federal IP law issues.
IP Discovery: The expense of discovery for IP cases can make these cases very costly. New figures compiled by the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) show a continued upward trend in legal expenses associated with patent cases. JAMS can help shape the discovery process in an efficient manner allowing for much needed cost controls. Among other methods of discovery management JAMS can help define search terms, establish guidelines for electronic discovery and narrow the focus throughout an arbitration process.
