IP Attorneys: A Guide to Effective, Engaging Graphics for Patent Litigation


Apple’s recent victory over Samsung in their patent infringement case had to be one of the most closely watched intellectual property cases ever, and trial graphics played a decisive role in shaping juror and public opinion. Whereas the Apple case involved primarily a “look and feel” that is not terribly difficult for laypeople to reach their own conclusions about, IP cases generally involve extreme technical detail and subjects that can be exceedingly difficult for a nonexpert to understand. For this reason, litigation graphics are needed and developed for patent and other IP matters more than almost any other field of law. Cogent Legal has produced an interactive guide to show our approach and share our ideas for developing litigation graphics for intellectual property cases. In today’s information-saturated world, jurors and others expect to obtain information visually and interactively. Graphics, such as the samples you’ll find in this guide, enhance oral and written arguments so attorneys can present information in the most effective and engaging way possible.
