As a prosecutor, you need to address a variety of topics. Give thought to how the litigation strategy will stand up to current laws and trends, if prior art will need to be vetted, and how core-focused the strategy will be to the business.
Prepare your team for different possible litigation scenarios. Convince your management team to accept that there is no such thing as a “winning” litigation strategy.
