WilmerHale Partners Leon Greenfield and Mark Ford authored the chapter "Walker Process and Sham Litigation" in The Cambridge Handbook of Antitrust, Intellectual Property, and High Tech. In the chapter, the authors—who were the only legal practitioners consulted for the book—discuss the history and development of the Walker Process and sham litigation doctrines, some of the key unresolved issues that courts struggle with today, and scholarship relating to these doctrines.
This Cambridge Handbook, edited by Roger D. Blair and D. Daniel Sokol, brings together a group of world-renowned professors in the fields of law and economics to assess the theory and practice of antitrust, intellectual property, and high tech. With the increased globalization of antitrust, a better understanding of how law and economics shape this interface will help academics, policymakers, and practitioners to understand the existing state of academic literature, its limits, and its relevance to real-world antitrust. The book will be an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand academic and policy considerations shaping the world of antitrust, intellectual property, and high tech.
