"Delivering An Effective Opening Statement in Patent Cases (Plaintiff v. Defendant)," PLI's Patent Litigation 2016, November 2016.
Many skilled patent trial lawyers usually start crafting their opening statements well in advance of trial. In so doing, it gives you the best chance to streamline and simplify your case, weed out unpersuasive facts or arguments, and organize a coherent story in a timeline or other manner that the jury and Judge can follow. Even though most patent cases involve complex technical subject matter, numerous documents, and conflicting experts, an effective opening statement can provide a roadmap for the jury to follow and illuminate the key issues. This session will pit two skilled trial lawyers against one another in a live demonstration of a plaintiff’s and defendant’s opening statement in a patent case. Each counsel will be critiqued not only by the audience, but also by a jury consultant and a District Court Judge who will resolve any objections that are raised. The session will cover the most important components of an opening statement and common mistakes made or missed opportunities by both plaintiff’s and defense counsel in delivering these statements.
