January 3, 2018 Brown Bag CLE: Crafting Demand Letters: Strategic Considerations for How Much to Say

Topic:   Crafting Demand Letters: Strategic Considerations for How Much to Say

Slides:  Crafting Demand Letters

Speaker: Please join us as Nathan Brunette presents on the considerations that go into how much detail to provide in demand letters, with a focus on patent infringement demand letters. This CLE identifies potential goals of writing demand letters, and the relative risks of saying too much vs. too little depending on what the demand letter seeks to accomplish. In particular, he will discuss strategic considerations for demand letters in light of TC Heartland, and whether (and when) TC Heartland changes the calculus as to whether a demand letter should be detailed or vague.
