Inventors and lawyers — both in-house and firm counsel — involved in the prosecution of patents have a duty of candor to the US Patent Office, and breaching that duty renders patents unenforceable for inequitable conduct. Once common in litigation, allegations of inequitable conduct faced a more stringent review after the Federal Circuit’s decision in Therasense. Despite those heightened standards, recent cases demonstrate that equitable attacks on patents live on, are often successful and commonly scrutinize the actions of in-house counsel.
In our next Legal Insights webinar, partners Greg Chopskie and Rahul Pathak will explore two case studies exemplifying the day-to-day decisions in-house counsel make and how those decisions impacted litigation years later. They will discuss the requirements for showing inequitable conduct and consider steps that can be taken to help avoid such attacks.
Our interactive webinar format will also allow you to discuss specific related questions and share key issues that your organization faces. Please join us for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion on a very important topic.
