Mock Trials and Focus Groups

Mock Markman Hearing

The mock Markman hearing enables you to test your oral argument with retired federal judges and/or senior attorneys with patent experience commensurate to that of your actual judge. We then facilitate a strategy session to move your argument to the next persuasive level.

We serve as the frontline communicators with the mock judges to ensure they are blind to the true sponsors of the research project until we reveal your identity at the strategy phase of the mock hearing. Judges complete preliminary written opinions, deliberate as a panel, are interviewed by the trial consultant, and debrief with the trial team at the conclusion of the day. We will then analyze the findings from the mock trial and provide case strategy recommendations for the actual Markman hearing.
