Stay up to date on the latest events and trends.

The litigation landscape can change quickly. Landmark court decisions, changes to controlling statutes, and evolving business strategies all contribute to the volatility. Strategies that worked in the past might not work well today, and staying up to date can be challenging. Fortunately, Docket Navigator makes it easy with daily updates of key litigation events, weekly updates of shifting trends, as needed deep-dive reports when disruptive events occur, and custom alerts that focus on events that matter to you.

“Do not spare any reasonable expense to come at early and true information; always recollecting, and bearing in mind, that vague and uncertain accounts of things [are] … more disturbing and dangerous than receiving none at all.”

— George Washington


The Docket Report

The Docket Report provides a concise, daily summary of patent, copyright, and trademark litigation in U.S. district courts sent directly to your inbox. For Patent litigation we also cover PTAB and ITC. Our team of attorney editors and data analysts carefully categorize and annotate every complaint, and every substantive decision in our selected practice areas. The result is an attorney-curated, bird’s-eye view of the most recent court activity that has become an industry staple in patent litigation.

The Docket Report is also available for antitrust, trade secret, and securities litigation in U.S. district courts, but without attorney-written content.

The Docket Report is available for all libraries.

Docket Alerts

Simplify With One Email Per Binder. Docket Navigator creates a single Docket Alert email for all tabs (separate searches) in a binder.

  • new cases involving a company
  • new filings in any case
  • decisions involving certain legal concepts (e.g., §101 unpatentability)
  • rulings on a specific type of motion (e.g., motions for attorney fees)

You control the recipient list and frequency. Changes to the binder automatically update the alerts.
