The Focal Point worked closely with our client to defend claims that Websense, a San Diego maker of corporate security software, infringed upon patents relating to gateway solutions which scan for hostile malware.

The Focal Points Role

During the 12-month collaboration TFP designed teaching and thematic graphics for testing at a focus group and for use at trial, worked directly with technical and economic expert witnesses to simplify and present their conclusions, and provided trial presentation support services throughout the three-week trial.


In a complete win for our client, jurors found noninfringement, and invalidated the two patents asserted in the lawsuit.
