Litigation Management Services promote efficient and effective claim resolution by building a strong, working relationship with the Insured, and by doing all possible, within the terms of the policy, to help support the Insured in enforcing and/or defending their IP rights. These services are available on a per project fee basis, and are automatically included with the Abatement and/or Defense policies. Litigation Management Services assist the Insured in managing legal services and costs associated with costly IP litigation. Litigation Management Services, combined with IPISC’s experience in managing litigation for our policy holders, often saves the policy holder real dollars in excess of the amounts paid in premium.
As a courtesy to Abatement Insurance policyholders, Intellectual Property Insurance Services Corporation (IPISC) offers access to Early Intervention (EI) Services. This service allows the policyholder to request nonthreatening letters, sent by IPISC’s litigation management department to suspected infringers, advising them of the existence of the policyholder’s intellectual property (IP) rights and the fact that those rights are insured. In IPISC’s experience, prompt response to newly discovered Infringement often results in a quick resolution. The policyholder is not required to utilize the EI Services prior to filing a Claim; instead, the Services are available as a first response tool as a precursor to a Claim. IPISC’s EI Services have resulted in a satisfactory resolution of the problem in more than 80% of the cases where the Insured has chosen to utilize the Services.
