This program will explore what makes patent litigation different from other types of litigation, from the Rule 11 pre-filing investigation through the appeal to the Federal Circuit. Attendees will learn important practical details including who to sue and what to put in the complaint. They will learn what discovery is needed in a patent case and how discovery differs from other civil litigation. Disclosures of infringement and invalidity contentions, the claim construction process at and leading up to the Markmanhearing will also be examined. Find out what is needed to prove infringement and how a patent may be invalidated by prior art or rendered unenforceable by inequitable conduct. Hear what can be expected at trial and what remedies are available.
