Vedder Thinking | Events Thomas J. Kowalski to Participate in Roundtable at ACI's 5th Annual Advanced Summit on Medical Device Patents
March 4-5, 2015
Thomas J. Kowalski, a Shareholder and member of Vedder Price's Intellectual Property group in the firm's New York office, will participate in a roundtable as a panelist at the American Conference Institute's Advanced Summit on Medical Device Patents on March 4, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois.
The two-day conference will focus on the most prevalent issues affecting the medical device industry and companies alike when prosecuting, enforcing or defending its patents. Topics to be discussed include the best methods for using IPRs in parallel district court litigation, advanced prosecution techniques in light of Supreme Court cases, and understanding the confines of joint infringement and claim drafting techniques to avoid future claims. Mr. Kowalski's session, "Prosecutor and Litigator Roundtable—Adapting to the New Landscape of Patentable Subject Matter, Indefiniteness, and Willfulness," will discuss recent key cases and the effect they have on evaluating patent portfolios, drafting future claims and adjusting litigation tactics.
