Course Description

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.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Recognize the role of discovery in the Markman hearing
  2. Identify how discovery is different in the patent context – what is a contention interrogatory? How is e-discovery handled?
  3. Determine when and how experts should be interviewed, selected, and prepared for deposition
  4. Obtain practice tips to help you guide your client through the discovery phase of a patent litigation
