Strafford will be offering a webinar/teleconference entitled "Proving and Avoiding Inequitable Conduct in Patent Prosecution and Litigation -- Leveraging Court Treatment Post-Therasense and the AIA's Answer to Inequitable Conduct Issues" on January 8, 2015 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm (EST). Thomas L. Irving of Finnegan Henderson Farabow Garrett & Dunner, Jennifer M.K. Rogers of Shumaker & Sieffert, and Margaret J. Sampson of Vinson & Elkins will provide guidance to patent counsel on understanding the types of activity that may lead to a finding of inequitable conduct and practical tactics to avoid inequitable content in patent prosecution, and examine arguments that have worked to avoid a finding of inequitable conduct. The webinar will review the following questions:
• What are the most common assertions defendants make when raising the inequitable conduct defense?
• What are best practices prosecutors and litigators should employ when pursuing and defending inequitable conduct allegations?
• What guidance do post-Therasense decisions provide on how inequitable conduct will be treated?
