We invite you to join our distinguished patent prosecution and litigation experts for this informative and interactive discussion, which will position you to preserve and enhance your company’s ability to protect and commercialize intellectual property in a global environment.
Our speakers will discuss:
- Update on U.S. Patent Law (Kristopher L. Reed) – Mr. Reed, a partner on the Patent Litigation Team at Kilpatrick Townsend, will discuss the most recent developments in United States Patent Law and the potential impact of those developments on intellectual property protection and enforcement in the United States.
- Best Practices in a Post-Halo World Halo (A. James Isbester) – Recent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court have greatly increased the prominence of willful infringement damages in patent cases. Mr. Isbester, a partner in our San Francisco office and former leader of the firm’s Patent Litigation practice will discuss this case law and the emerging best practices for learning about and responding to third party patent infringement claims.
- Navigating the Post-Grant Landscape (Wab Kadaba) – The Patent Trial and Appeal Board has become the most popular forum for U.S. Patent disputes. Mr. Kadaba, a partner in the firm’s Atlanta office, will describe best practices and other strategic issues that relate to challenging or defending the validity of U.S. Patents in Post-Grant Proceedings.
Simultaneous translation services will be provided.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
