Representative Matters:

  • Retained by Blue Spike's outside counsel for mining Blue Spike's patent portfolio for enforceable patents covering digital rights management, digital watermarking and cryptography. Purva identified over 15 potential licensees for the portfolio and helped outside counsel form infringement positions through product demonstrations and public documentation research.

  • Retained by a Chicago-based law firm for infringement research related to cardiovascular implants as part of ongoing licensing negotiations. Her analysis provided crucial leverage for the client, enabling the client to negotiate more favorable terms with its partner.

  • Retained by a leading plaintiff law firm in Texas for evaluating strength of infringement and invalidity positions for a potential contingency engagement. Purva identified 3 close prior art references that could potentially invalidate the patent claims - and cautioned the client away from the engagement. 3 years later, the PTAB found the patent claims invalid in light of 2 of those prior art references.

  • Retained by a Germany-based technology company for patent infringement research related to operating system products. Purva led the effort to reverse engineer hardware and software to show infringement.
