February 27, 2013
The American Conference Institute ("ACI") hosts its 5th Expert Forum on ITC Litigation & Enforcement at the Washington Hilton, Washington, D.C. on February 25-27, 2013.
In addition to serving as a Conference Co-Chair for this event, on February 27, 2013, Tom Schaumberg participates in the interactive working group session entitled Procedural Agreements for 337 Investigations: A Practical Guide for Effectively Negotiating Key Litigation Issues In Advance of Trial .
The procedural agreement that is set out between the parties at the start of the 337 investigation can not only set the tone for the case, but it can make the behind-the-scenes logistics of managing the case much easier from a case coordination perspective. Often involving several or even dozens of parties on each or both sides, the procedural agreement can be used by parties to effectively hash out major as well as minor details that can later bring the investigation to a halt if not properly addressed swiftly and fairly.
During this session learn what issues should be brought to the forefront and negotiated as part of this agreement, such as, eDiscovery, privilege, claw back, protective order, source code, and the joint defense agreement.
