GG Live and On-Demand CLE Video Webinar Series | Willful Infringement and Enhanced Damages: Litigation Takeaways in an Evolving Landscape
By Gardella Grace | August 9, 2022
Webinar date and time: Wednesday, August 24, 1:00PM – 2:00PM ET.
On Wednesday, August 24, 2022, please join Cook Alciati and Michael Dorfman for “Willful Infringement and Enhanced Damages: Litigation Takeaways in an Evolving Landscape.”
Parties often wonder what is required to form the basis for an allegation of willful infringement, including whether and to what extent pre-filing communications are required. The Federal Circuit has offered some guidance, but district courts take different approaches. Further, there is an interrelationship between a finding of willfulness and an exceptional case, but not a requirement. Still further, even upon a finding of an exceptional case, the award of enhanced damages has varied significantly from court to court. In the end, the landscape has evolved and continues to evolve, requiring patent practitioners and corporations to pivot to meet these changes.
The panelists will cover:
- Significant decisions of the past 24 months related to willful infringement, exceptional cases and enhanced damages
- Litigation best practices in view of recent developments in the case law, including how to plead and respond to allegations of willful infringement
This webinar will provide useful insights for corporate representatives, in-house counsel and intellectual property practitioners.
Continuing Legal Education Credit (CLE) is available. Gardella Grace will apply for CLE credit where requested.
