Partner, TechKnowledge Law Group LLP, (San Francisco). Kevin Jones, an active patent litigator, will analyze recent trends in U.S. patent litigation.

Additionally, he will discuss recent changes in the law, including for example the Federal Circuit's continued interest in patent damages, President Obama's and Congress's attempt to discourage frivolous suits, and the International Trade Commission's interest in efficiently handling its growing docket.

About CLE Credit

Please bring your state attorney ID number so that you can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
