Quinn Emanuel Associate Krista Rycroft will speak in collaboration with other leading practitioners at PLI’s April 17th seminar, “Fundamentals of Patent Litigation 2015.” The program will explore the basics of patent litigation, whether in the District Court or in the ITC, from the Rule 11 pre-filing investigation through the appeal to the Federal Circuit. Attendees will learn essential practical details, such as how to prepare complaints and answers in a patent case, as well as the nuts and bolts of patent-related discovery. The seminar will also explore the claim construction process leading up to the Markman hearing, including the Supreme Court's and Federal Circuit’s evolving law of how patents should be interpreted. Attendees will find out what is needed to prove infringement and how a patent may be invalidated by prior art or rendered unenforceable by inequitable conduct. They will also hear what can be expected at trial and what remedies are available as well as how the Supreme Court, the Federal Circuit, and the Patent and Trademark Office are reshaping patent law and patent litigation.
