March 2016 – New Opportunities and New Attacks: The Evolution of Patent Law, Intellectual Property Law, and Litigation Reform Efforts Since the America Invents Act

Join our diverse panel of intellectual property practitioners for an informative discussion about the evolving law of patents and other intellectual property, with a focus on patent litigation, reform efforts, and patent office post-grant review proceedings. Touched off by the America Invents Act (“AIA”), rarely has patent law undergone so many changes in such a short period of time. From the AIA to changing Supreme Court law, to federal trade secrets legislation, to the Innovation Act, there is nary a dull moment. Your smorgasbord of challenges to patents, and the defense against those and other challenges, has never been greater … or more confusing and uncertain. The only certainty is that every life sciences organization needs to know this landscape. Come listen as the panel provides you tools to consider your best path forward, which may vary widely depending on your size and business model.
