Patent Litigation 2014
Sponsoring by: Practicing Law Institute
October 6-7, 2014
Rapid changes in patent law make it necessary that, whether you are the plaintiff’s or defendant’s counsel, you are up-to-date on the current state of the law and can quickly develop successful litigation strategies and tactics. This program is taught by a faculty of both outside and in-house lawyers who have earned national reputations in patent litigation by trying and managing a wide variety of bench and jury patent trials and U.S. Patent Office post grant trial proceedings, and provides comprehensive coverage of every phase of these patent matters. This year’s program also features views from U.S. District Court judges who will provide their insights on the state of patent litigation and practical tips for litigants. Through lecture and demonstration, you will be able to hone your patent litigation skills in just two days.
