The Supreme Court, the Federal Circuit, and the Patent and Trademark Office are reshaping patent law, and this program will teach you everything you need to know about the basics of patent litigation. An expert faculty will cover the patent litigation process from start to finish, including actions brought in the District Court and at the International Trade Commission. From the Rule 11 pre-filing investigation through the appeal in the Federal Circuit, attendees will learn essential practical details, such as how to prepare complaints and answers in a patent case, as well as the nuts and bolts of patent-related discovery. The program will also explore the claim construction process leading up to the Markman hearing, including the Supreme Court’s and Federal Circuit’s evolving law of how patents should be interpreted. Learn what is needed to prove infringement and how a patent may be invalidated by prior art or rendered unenforceable by inequitable conduct. Explore what to expect at trial and learn what remedies are available.
