Years of Patent Experience

For over two decades in global law firms, Thane Bauz has focused his practice on patent litigation, including at trial.  In conjunction with his litigation practice, Thane has helped clients respond to patent assertions, file reexamination/IPRs and assess infringement allegations. He has also leveraged that experience to guide clients with strategic IP portfolio-related decisions including licensing negotiations.

What we Offer?

IP Litigation

98% percent of patent litigation cases settle prior to trial. While every case is factually distinct, we have prevailed every motion in limine, motion for protective order, and motion to compel. Thane wants to keep his clients out of the courtroom, but when the other side is unreasonable, he works hard to win.

In-House IP Counseling

Thane guides companies on IP capture, less costly litigation strategies, transactional issues, and the selection and management of outside counsel. He also serves as “shadow counsel” for the in-house legal team. Having worked as in-house and outside counsel, Thane knows how to improve quality and reduce cost.

Patent Portfolio Analysis

Throughout his career, Thane helped companies strengthen their IP position. He helped manage sixteen thousand IP assets. Under his guidance, his team identified numerous IP “gems” including a portfolio certified by accountants at $500M. He also handled due diligence for large corporate clients interested in purchasing or selling IP assets.

Licensing Negotiations & Agreements

For several years, Thane has guided clients with strategic IP portfolio-related decisions including licensing negotiations and agreements.
