Patent Litigation Trends for the Financial Services Industry

Join King & Spalding partners for our Financial Services Industry Webinar Series, which offers CLE credit to attendees. In appreciation of your participation, King & Spalding will make a donation to Feeding America for every participant that joins.

As financial services companies develop and implement new technology, there is a significant risk of patent litigation. Recently, financial institutions have faced dozens of patent infringement lawsuits focusing on critical day-to-day operations. Technology, such as transaction and data processing, and remote and mobile banking systems, has in particular been targeted. As the financial services sector continues to use and adopt novel and mobile technologies, this litigation trend is likely to continue.

Please join members of our Intellectual Property team as they discuss the following important topics for financial services companies to consider:

  • Continued evolution of 35 U.S.C. § 101 challenges in various jurisdictions, including the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, including an update on recent decisions impacting financial institutions
  • Patent office procedures post-CBM, including an overview of IPR procedures for challenging patent validity outside of district court
  • Updates on key financial services patent litigations and recent developments in case law that financial services companies can leverage in litigation, including divided infringement, prior use development, willfulness claims and attorneys’ fees. 
  • Other tips for financial services companies to consider, including using indemnity provisions to ensure intellectual property protection for use of third-party technology
