Strafford will be offering a webinar entitled "Proving and Avoiding Inequitable Conduct and Unclean Hands in Patent Prosecution and Litigation" on July 24, 2018 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm (EDT). Paul W. Browning, Thomas L. Irving, and Amanda K. Murphy will guide patent counsel on understanding the types of activity that may lead to a finding of inequitable conduct or unclean hands, provide insights into practical tactics to avoid the risk of a court's ruling of inequitable conduct or unclean hands, and also examine arguments that have worked to avoid a finding of inequitable conduct or unclean hands and those that haven't. The webinar will review the following issues:
• What are the most common assertions defendants make when raising the inequitable conduct and unclean hands defenses?
• What are best practices prosecutors and litigators should employ to avoid and/or defend against inequitable conduct or unclean hands allegations?
• What guidance do post-Therasense decisions provide on how inequitable conduct will be treated?
• What guidance do post-Therasense decisions provide on how unclean hands defenses will be treated?
• How will Supplemental Examination effect both unclean hands and inequitiable conduct?
