||4th Annual Paragraph IV Disputes Master Symposium
American Conference Institute (ACI) is very excited to return to Chicago for our fourth annual Paragraph IV Disputes Master Symposium. This conference, along with its sister New York conference presented in the spring, is the “place to be” for the “who’s who” of litigators in the brand-name and generic pharmaceutical space. We are proud to provide you with a forum where you can hear from industry leaders on the hottest areas, while connecting with your peers to discuss the challenges that arise in the various regions of the Hatch Waxman arena.

- Mock Parallel Proceeding: Pharmaceutical Patent Invalidity Hearing in the District Court and the PTAB
Monday, September 19, 2016 | 2:15 PM - 3:30 PM CDT
The increased use of parallel litigations in the Hatch-Waxman arena adds yet another fun twist to the “boxing-gloves-on” atmosphere of this type of high-stakes litigation. Attempting to navigate the proceedings between these two forums has been described as “walking a tightrope.” In this interactive session, the panelists will illustrate the tricks and techniques of this balancing act through a mock parallel invalidity hearing in both a “District Court” and “the PTAB.” The audience will be provided with a fact pattern, and the “patent challenger” and “patent holder” will duke it out before a “District Court” and a “PTAB panel.” At the end of the mock hearing and motion, delegates will deliberate and use polling devices to cast their votes as to the outcome in each forum.
