Effective ADR Options for Every Stage

The resolution of an intellectual property dispute is a process. MCN 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

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

Neutral Analysis

MCN 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

Mediation

MCN 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

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