Litigation Outsourcing

This firm accepts and outsourse litigation case to other trial law firms. The concept is that the AZ patent will provide its service in docuemnt processing, this arrangement can reduce litigation expenses considerably. Because the firm contracts reputable attorneys and trial firms, there is no limit on the scope of litigation services.

By using highly innovative software and tools, this arrangement may be able to reduce legal fees by as much as 50%.

This concept can be shown by an example. In a typical copyright litigation case involving a large number of counts of infringement, a law firm generally hires attorneys and law clerks to search copyright registration records from the Copyrights Office database over Internet or search the registration files. It was necessary to produce a log showing all infringed copyrighted works (or matched registration records). It would take tremendous manpower to search and print records one by one, and then manually type the log line by line. No commercial software can do the job. Dr. Wu found that such task could be done with half of the time. He actually duplicated the whole process: he did a few searches to collect all information in a buffer (however disorganized it might be), and then used a little custom software tool to pick up the information. He was able to pick up every entry exactly as he intended. The accuracy cannot possibly exceeded by human typists. He further developed a new hypothetical scheme (which is not tested because database files are unavailable ): buying the registration records from the Copyright Office (assuming it sells registration records in the form of a disk file, then comparing the database containing infringing works with the targeted registration records, and automatically producing a log for the watched records. This automatic scheme could change a million dollar project to one that would consume only some nominal fees and costs, and shorten the project cycle by many months.

If this firm takes a qualified case for a contingency fee, it will charge only 20-25% of the gross amount recovered rather than 33% to 50% of the gross recovery. In defending claims, the firm strives to reduce billable hours.
