SPEAKER
Scott B. Markow, Senior Group Patent Counsel, Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.

DESCRIPTION
Often, the greatest obstacle to reaching an agreement on patent licensing or settlement is a legitimate dispute about patent validity. One way of reaching an agreement despite these differences is a "high-low" settlement. In such an agreement, the parties agree to have validity adjudicated or decided, with the outcome predetermining the amount of the resulting settlement or licensing fee. Mr. Markow will discuss his experience with negotiating and drafting these types of agreements and some of the legal issues involved.

ONLINE REGISTRATION
This event is free, but registration is required.

Online Registration Deadline: June 2, 2015 12 PM, EDT
