The discovery process in patent litigation shares many similarities with other intellectual property cases in federal court, but there are specific nuances which are unique to patent cases. Join attorneys Amy B. Goldsmith and Alan Tenenbaum as they delve into the anatomy of discovery in enforcement and defense of claims involving design and utility patents, from both the patent owner’s and alleged infringer’s perspectives.
In this pertinent program, they will discuss discovery in the context of Markman hearings, contention interrogatories, fact and expert discovery, and motion practice.
Successful, profitable businesses share certain characteristics: immediately recognizable brands, desirable products or services, and a strategic plan which minimizes legal risks. As co-chair of the Intellectual Property Group at Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Amy B. Goldsmith partners with clients to provide practical legal advice and connections to grow their businesses. A strategic advisor, she guides clients in all stages of their development from idea conception and protection, to funding, manufacturing and enforcement.
She will advise you whether your trademark is available in the United States and globally, if patents should be a part of your strategy, and if your design team’s new product shares too many features of the competition’s copyrighted bestseller. She will design contracts that make sense. Amy will also guide you through the clearance process, whether the subject matter is books, movies or live action. If a dispute is on the horizon, she will be by your side until a fair resolution is reached. If knock-offs are all over social media platforms, Amy will help you take them down.
She has been a Vice President of the New York Women's Bar Association and currently is Co-Chair of the CLE Committee. She is also a member of the American Bar Association and the International Trademark Association (INTA) and is on the Board of Directors of Savvy Ladies, a non-profit whose mission is to educate women to be financially savvy. Amy also was a speaker at and served on the Advisory Board for TedxTimesSquare.
Before joining Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Amy was a partner at Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman, P.C.
Alan Tenenbaum concentrates on intellectual property litigation and counseling. He represents clients throughout the United States and before the International Trade Commission in patent, trademark, unfair competition and commercial litigation matters. He has experience with a wide array of technologies, including pharmaceuticals, chemicals, medical devices, hardware and software, e-commerce and business methods, and consumer products.
Applying business solutions from a legal perspective, Alan works with clients to identify, protect, manage and monetize core technology, brands and other proprietary rights. In addition to negotiating agreements and complex intellectual property transactions, Alan also effectively provides counsel to clients who seek to avoid disputes and resolve them without recourse to litigation.
This was listed as "advanced" but was just a basic survey of patent litigation. Waste of time for any experienced patent attorney.
This course informed me much more than just discovery. Excellent!
Good refresher on discovery issues even if not a patent attorney!
Great team of presenters!
very informatve with thorough screen notes.
Excellent program with Amy and Alan.
Love this team of patent attorneys packed with info and enjoyable delivery ask for more CLE from them!
Wonderful presenters-attorneys with thorough knowledge of the subject matter - excellent moderator support.
Pace was very good-might want to consider making this a 2 hour course; the subject matter would certainly support it.
I look forward to hearing when part 2 of this presentation is scheduled. The materials looked like this would be a great source of information and education.
Very comprehensive presentation!
