We are assembling a stellar speaking faculty for this year’s Patent Law and Policy conference, taking place in Washington DC on 15th November. Being held just a stone’s throw from the White House in the Ronald Reagan Center, the event will bring together senior government officials, members of the judiciary, corporate patent leaders, top private practitioners and investors to discuss how court decisions and legislation are affecting US patent values and strategies.
Joining keynote speaker USPTO Director Michelle Lee will be the chief judge of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, David Ruschke, ex-USPTO Director David Kappos and former Federal Circuit Chief Judge Paul Michel. Alongside them will be senior representatives from companies that are closely involved in the ongoing patent reform debate, including Google, Johnson & Johnson, Qualcomm, Bristol-Myers Squibb and IBM. Also in the faculty, we have lead counsel in two of the pivotal Supreme Court patent cases of the last decade – KSR v Teleflex and Cuozzo v Lee – as well as several high-profile patent investors.
Taking place just after the presidential and congressional elections, Patent Law and Policy will be the ideal forum not only to gauge the legislative temperature, but also to hear from and interact with many of the key figures shaping the US patent landscape. With sessions specifically designed to encourage Q&A, as well as a series of networking breaks, this unique event offers an opportunity that no one who is involved in patents – whether as an owner, an adviser or an investor – will want to miss.
No other event like Patent Law and Policy is taking place in the United States this year, and unsurprisingly demand for tickets has been high.
