Agenda

4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Eastern

Partner Robert Silverman spoke at the Boston Bar Association's Best Practices and Ethical Issues in Intellectual Property Litigation seminar. Over time, the world of patent litigation has lost much of the civility. Attorneys conduct, and that of their clients, can reach a level of hostility unmatched in other areas of litigation. No longer do some attorneys treat their work as a profession with expectations, guidelines and rules, but rather a business wherein the goal of winning is all that matters. This event covered best practices that retain civility while maintaining the zealous advocacy necessary to represent their clients. The panelists led a detailed discussion on the paradigm shift from civility, and how it affects each aspect of the discovery practice. Topics included document production tactics, claim construction issues, use of inequitable/unethical conduct allegations, reliance on opinions of counsel, and damages.
