Strafford will be offering a webinar/teleconference entitled "Patent Infringement Letters: Considerations and Best Practices for Senders and Recipients -- Patent Holder Strategies for Leveraging Letters and Avoiding DJ Actions; Defense and Response Strategies for Alleged Infringers" on June 18, 2015 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm (EDT). Kirupa Pushparaj, Head IP Counsel, Square and Bobbie Wilson of Perkins Coie will provide guidance for patent counsel on the use of patent infringement letters, discuss considerations and strategies for both the sender and recipient, and offer best practices for determining whether and when to send a letter as well as responding to an infringement letter. The webinar will review the following questions:
• What factors should patent owners consider before sending an infringement letter?
• How can the language of the letter minimize the likelihood of a DJ action?
• What can be learned from the letter that will help evaluate the risk and create an appropriate response?
• What steps should counsel take to minimize the risk of actual damages and/or injunctive relief?
