Athena FSP provides patent fee shifting protection to mitigate the risks patent owners face under 35 U.S.C. § 285 and pending legislation that imposes even higher fee shifting burdens on plaintiffs.
Without incurring any out-of-pocket expense, companies receive a commitment covering any fees or costs shifted up to $3 million. (Higher commitments are available in certain circumstances.) Athena FSP receives an investment return only upon successful resolution of the underlying litigation or licensing campaign.
Athena FSP is an affiliate of Burford Capital, the leading global finance firm focused on law.
