Do you want to learn how the America Invents Act (AIA) and recent decisions of the Supreme Court and Federal Circuit have affected the due diligence process?  Then you should attend the course Patent Due Diligence in the AIA Era at the Spring 2013 Advanced Courses Program from April 11-13, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, Florida. The three faculty members, Bryan Diner, Anthony Gutowski, and Andrew Holtman, have many years of experience in IP practice and expertise in several different areas of technology.  These faculty members have also collectively participated in over 100 due diligence evaluations.

The lively and entertaining presentation covers every phase of a due diligence investigation.  During the course, you will interact with instructors and other students while exploring case-study examples and lecture topics on a wide range of issues:

  • common legal-interest agreements
  • claim construction
  • freedom to operate
  • validity assessments
  • inequitable conduct
  • patent eligibility, and
  • ownership/transferability

The knowledge you’ll gain from this course will enable you to avoid due diligence pitfalls, while more effectively assessing and managing risks endemic in business transactions involving complex IP rights and issues.
