Intellectual Property Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services

Unparalleled Intellectual Property Experience with a Global Perspective

Intellectual Property Mediators, Arbitrators and Dispute Resolution Professionals

The depth of intellectual property (IP) dispute resolution experience at JAMS is unmatched by any other ADR provider. The JAMS Intellectual Property Practice Group includes retired federal judges from notable IP venues as well as retired state and appellate court judges and attorney-neutrals who specialize in high-stakes intellectual property litigation.

Our panel handles all types of IP and technology disputes including patent, copyright, trademark, false advertising, licensing, ITC Section 337, data security and privacy and trade secret matters.

As the world's largest private ADR provider, JAMS has handled IP cases set before:

  • U.S. state and federal trial and appellate courts, including the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals
  • U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC)
  • U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO)
  • Canadian Provincial and Federal Trial Courts and appellate courts
  • European Patent Office
  • Additional significant international jurisdictions, including Australia, China, European Union, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan

Effective ADR Options for Every Stage

The resolution of an intellectual property dispute is a process. JAMS offers effective ADR options for complex, evolving IP matters before a dispute arises and at every stage of the litigation process, from discovery—including Markman proceedings— through settlement, trial or arbitration and appeals.

Contract Drafting

The JAMS Clause Workbook offers sample clauses and JAMS neutrals are available to speak to your firm or legal department about specific drafting considerations for IP agreements.

Neutral Analysis

JAMS neutrals provide non-binding analysis of how trial judges, arbitrators or administrative agencies might respond to your case. Neutral analysis may include:

  • Pre-filing assessment of possible claims
  • Assessment of written materials such as briefs, documentary evidence or demonstrative exhibits
  • Analysis of discreet issues, evidence, expert testimony or lines of reasoning
  • Case valuation in preparation for a settlement conference or mediation
  • Mock trials or mock hearings on critical motions in matters to be presented to trial or appellate judges or administrative agencies such as the ITC or PTO

Special Masters

JAMS general, discovery and e-discovery special masters are often asked to mediate one or more cases, rule on or mediate discovery and pre-trial disputes or assist in designing case settlement options.

Mediation

JAMS mediators are well-versed in the unique issues at play in IP cases and understand both the monetary and non-monetary factors that impact settlement decisions.

Arbitration

JAMS arbitrators augment their deep subject matter expertise with ongoing training on the latest developments in IP law and ADR. Attorneys can count on them to make sound judgments under JAMS rules or under the rules of another provider.


International Scope

With offices in Europe, the U.S. and Canada, JAMS offers an international roster of mediators and arbitrators who specialize in IP matters and have handled a wide range of multijurisdictional patent, trademark and copyright disputes, including appeals and oppositions. Our neutrals have successfully resolved complex, worldwide IP disputes at single consolidated hearings.
