Can alternative fee arrangements be used for complex IP litigation matters? 

The answer is yes! And in this webinar, you’ll learn how — step by step.

Laura Spalding, Director of PERSUIT’s Legal Advisory Team, will teach you the specific AFA process Fortune 500 companies use to engage outside counsel for IP litigation matters.

Laura will share insights gleaned from advising some of the world’s largest in-house counsel teams as they manage complex IP litigation matters.  

  • A tactical “roadmap” for scoping IP litigation matters
  • The best AFAs for IP litigation matters — which ones to use and when
  • How to manage AFAs throughout the life of the matter — and material deviations to changes in scope

This session is part of our AFA University series, where members of PERSUIT’s Legal Advisory Team demonstrate how you and your team can use AFAs for specific use cases.
