Foley Partner Matt Smith will be speaking at The American Conference Institute's IP NPE Litigation Summit: How to Successfully Defend Against Complex IP Infringement Claims & Litigation Involving "Patent Trolls" on June 11th - 12th, 2012 in New York. Mr. Smith will be presenting at the pre-conference boot camp that is called the Advanced AIA Boot Camp for IP Litigators on June 11th from 1:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Mr. Smith will be presenting with Teresa Stanek Rea, Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director at the United States Patent and Trademark Office and Philip Wadsworth, Vice President & Legal Counsel at Qualcomm, Inc. They will discuss: "What Every IP Litigation Counsel Needs to Know about Supplemental Proceedings, Post-Grant Review, Estoppel, Inter Partes Reexam and Inter Partes Review."

This program will provide practical strategies on:

  • Approaching settlement and license negotiations with an NPE;
  • Utilizing reexam, motion practice, claim construction and the Markman hearing to preemptively address weak IP;
  • Effectively asserting key defenses – divided or joint infringement, prior commercial use laches and patent pools; and
  • Making the decision of whether or not participate in a patent pool, defensive patent aggregation group or joint defense agreement.

Attendees will also discuss the best practices for successfully defending against this new breed of patent infringement claim and will walk away with practical tips and proven strategies for ensuring their client achieves success in its next action involving an NPE.
