Market for Patent Litigators Remains Strong Despite Troll Thrashing

​Litigation Chair Rodger Cole was quoted in an article in The Recorder titled "Market for Patent Litigators Remains Strong Despite Troll Thrashing."

The article notes a survey by Unified Patents that found that patent litigation filings dropped by 29 percent in 2014 and asks whether two recent Supreme Court decisions have caused "the traditional nonpracticing entity business model [to] lose some ground." If so, the author wonders, how will that affect IP litigation practices at law firms?

Cole said, "I think the strong will get stronger in the market, and the weak will get weaker. For firms that don't have a strong brand for IP litigation, I think investing in it might be a mistake."
