Asim Bhansali Speaks at PLI's 5th Annual Patent Law Institute

February 22 and March 18, 2011

On February 18 in New York, and on March 22 in San Francisco, Mr. Bhansali will present "Litigation Inequitable Conduct in the Wake of Therasense."

  • What is the test for proving inequitable conduct?
  • Navigating the heightened pleading requirement in Exergen
  • Best practices for handling inequitable conduct claims in litigation
  • What does the future hold for inequitable conduct?

The Institute will cover the practice impact of recent developments on all three sub-groups in the patent law community: patent prosecutors, patent litigators, and strategic & transactional lawyers. The two-day schedule includes six one-hour plenary sessions of broad interest to patent lawyers and a separate breakout track for prosecution, litigation, and strategic & transactional practices. Each track features six one-hour breakout sessions focused on each of the three patent practice sub-groups. In just two days, you will learn the important developments and best practices in each area. And earn Ethics credit, too! You can design the Institute schedule that best meets your individual practice needs. Do not miss this unique opportunity to sharpen your practice skills and to network with federal judges, USPTO officials, in-house counsel and outside lawyers.
