“In Search of Best Practices for Post-AIA
Patent Litigation Case Management”

The Regional Conference on Patent Litigation in New York

The Sedona Conference’s Working Group 10 (WG10) is just beginning its dialogue in search of best practices in patent litigation in the wake of the profound changes mandated by the America Invents Act (AIA) and the Patent Pilot Program.

This conference will give you the chance to participate in – and contribute to – the initial phase of this very important discussion. By taking part in Sedona’s acclaimed dialogue-based approach, you will join leading judges, practitioners, and regulators in search of a non-partisan consensus that will help shape patent litigation practice in the post-AIA landscape.

Leora Ben-Ami of Kirkland & Ellis and Ronald J. Schutz of Robin, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi serve as conference co-chairs. They have pulled together a stellar faculty to lead the dialogue, including leading judges, patent practitioners, and regulators in the New York area (see below).

Expert panels will lead dialogue in the following topic areas:

  • Early Evaluation of Damage Exposure
  • Markman Hearings and Claim Construction
  • Contested Parallel Proceedings Before the USPTO
  • ITC: Domestic Industry Requirement and Relief Available
  • Patent Litigation Case Management

The complete agenda, a full list of the faculty and each faculty member’s biography is found below.

The Sedona Conference® will be applying for 375 minutes of MCLE accreditation.

The conference will be held at the Jacob Burns Moot Court Room of the Cardozo School of Law, located at 55 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan (Click here for a map.).
