Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
The American Bar Association recently released the first of its kind strategic guide for patent litigators, Patently Persuasive: Strategies for Influencing Judge and Jury.
Authors Dr. Karen Lisko and Dr. Kevin Boully, Litigation Consultants with Persuasion Strategies, a service of Holland & Hart LLP, offer a comprehensive "how to" guide for persuasion in patent cases, underpinned by considerable jury research, survey data and the human stories illuminating both.
“Patently Persuasive is an invaluable resource for effectively influencing judges and juries in complex patent matters,” said Holland & Hart trial practice chair Jane Michaels. “I consider it required reading for new and seasoned patent litigators, alike.”
Drawing upon their research with hundreds of actual and mock jurors over the past 18 years and upon their own strategy consultation on numerous patent cases, Dr. Lisko and Dr. Boully discuss important realities of patent juries that demand consideration when trying cases before these fact finders.
Dr. Lisko has more than 25 years of experience in hundreds of civil cases across the country. She utilizes her training to strategize with clients on persuasive themes and arguments in arbitrations, bench and jury trials. She holds a doctorate in legal communication, a specialized degree held by only a few consultants in the nation, and is past president of the American Society of Trial Consultants.
Dr. Boully has been active in litigation consulting since 2001. His doctorate in legal communication focuses on persuasion, small group influence, and jury decision making. Dr. Boully has conducted and analyzed research and advised on a full range of plaintiff and defense cases. Dr. Boully has been associate editor and advisor to the American Society of Trial Consultants’ jury research and courtroom communication publication, The Jury Expert.
