Patent Litigation: Best Practices for Winning
Your Jury Trial

Date: Thursday, January 29, 2015

Time: 1:00 - 2:15 p.m. ET

Developing and effectively presenting your evidence and case themes in a patent jury trial are critical, and jury considerations should be evaluated at all stages of a patent case, not just during final pretrial preparations. Unfortunately, patent cases often involve complex facts, technologies and legal theories, hindering each side's ability to communicate their case to the jury.

To help IP litigators, patent owners and accused infringers navigate these issues, Practical Law is hosting a free 75-minute webinar in which patent litigator Jeanne Gills of Foley & Lardner LLP and jury consultant Gil Calvillo of Calvillo & Associates will discuss best practices for jury considerations in patent cases.

Attendees will learn:

  • Key initial jury considerations, including retention of a jury consultant, pre-suit patent owner considerations, initial accused infringer considerations and identifying potential case themes.
  • Best practices for developing your themes during fact and expert discovery, including offensive and defensive discovery considerations.
  • Practical guidance concerning final pretrial activities, including witness preparation, case theme refinement and mock jury studies.
  • Best practices for conducting a patent jury trial, including voir dire, opening and closing statements, witness examinations and using your jury consultant.

A short Q&A session will follow.

CLE credit available for participants in live webcast only.
