McKool Smith principal Ted Stevenson provided commentary to Bloomberg Law's article "Patent Filings, Litigation May Shift Economic Crisis." The article stated "companies are facing tough decisions about applying for patents and launching infringement lawsuits amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ted made the point "that conservation of capital is the goal of a lot of businesses." The article can be found here.
