An Internet product sales corporation needed help managing responses to an ever-growing number of patent claims. With reduced staff, it became increasingly difficult for the small law department, headed by a patent attorney, to meet deadlines in a timely fashion. Nevertheless, there was a preference to hold expenses down by handling as much of the work as possible in-house with either an on-site attorney or one working remotely.
Within 24 hours of receiving the request, Assigned Counsel presented a seasoned IP attorney. The contract attorney, who would work off-site, had her own response templates, which would facilitate prompt action. The client was impressed with the contract attorney’s work product model and the reasonableness of Assigned Counsel’s bill rate. The contract attorney was pleased that the engagement allowed her to maintain the work-life balance and flexibility she desired. A win-win solution.
