  1. The IP Proficiencies Litigation Matrix was developed by CLOC’s IP Committee to help guide and inform legal operations professionals who support IP litigation and other inter partes matters such as Inter Partes Reviews before the USPTO Patent Trial and Appeal Board. The Matrix includes proficiencies related to Technology, Process, People, Policies, Third Party Support, and Enforcement / Monetization of IP 


Legal operations professionals can use the IP Proficiencies Litigation Matrix to: 

  • Identify existing and desired competencies in the areas of inter partes IP matters 
  • Benchmark the organization’s maturity level against other IP legal departments 
  • Focus on specific information, tools, and tasks that will help mature the IP operations function. 

The IP Proficiencies Litigation Matrix was presented at CLOC’s 2019 Las Vegas Institute in May 2019.  The IP Committee would like to acknowledge the hundreds of hours of volunteer time that it took to develop, vet, and present the IP Proficiencies Litigation Matrix. Thank you to: Melanie Carmosino, David Brightman, Dominic Crosby, Annya Dushine, Tina Elsner, Brent Harris, Adam Jaffe, Jennifer Karr, Stephanie Sanders and Sam Wiley.
