Case in Point Webinar Series:
The 10 Things You Need to Know About Patent Litigation in 2017

February 14, 2017 | 10:00-11:00 am CT

Patent litigation in 2017 will continue to be high stakes for the companies involved. In developing the best strategies as plaintiff or as defendant, trial counsel will find that the playing field and rules are significantly changed from what they were just a few years ago. Besides the now well-known legislative changes and significant case law decisions that have upended many aspects of patent litigation, recent decisions continue to provide opportunities for new strategies, as well as new pitfalls for the unwary.

This CLE program will give the perspectives of two highly experienced trial attorneys on how they develop case strategies, avoid those pitfalls, and achieve successful outcomes for the firm’s clients.
