The Intellectual Property Owners Association will hold its 41st Annual Meeting on September 15-17 in Boston. The keynote speakers include David Goulden, President and COO, EMC Corporation, and Hon. Kathleen O'Malley, Circuit Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
In addition, McAndrews, Held & Malloy Shareholder Herbert D. Hart III will be a featured speaker. Because of his significant experience litigating before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), Hart was invited to organize and participate in the session titled, "Back To The Future: Trial Practice of the PTAB."
Specifically, Hart will address current practice, decisions, and strategies in both litigating and managing PTAB trials, which are highly specialized, fast-paced, and unforgiving for those inexperienced in PTAB trial practice. Hart will also provide trial practice tips directly applicable to today's post-grant trial proceedings. Other long-time PTAB practitioners featured on the panel include:
- Bruce Stoner, Greenblum & Bernstein, P.L.C. (Former Chief Administrative Patent Judge, Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences)
- Oliver Ashe, Ashe, P.C.
- Mark A. Charles, The Procter & Gamble Company
- Danny Huntington, Rothwell, Figg, Ernst & Manbeck, P.C.
