Program Description:

Litigation lurks in almost every decision made by a corporation or company, even individuals. Great care is needed to foresee potential patent and other issues well in advance to forestall lawsuits, take the requisite measures, and provide warnings. The speaker has considerable experience in dealing with IP litigation in numerous scenarios, and has many stories to relate, as well as advice.

Buffet lunch provided.

A chemical engineer and registered patent attorney, Jeff concentrates on patent and trademark litigation, counseling and licensing, as well as other intellectual property and general litigation. He regularly represents plaintiffs as well as defendants ─ both at trial and on appeal ─ in a range of technology-related sectors with a focus on pharmaceuticals, chemicals, mechanical/medical-device, biotechnology and life sciences, and represented pharmaceutical innovators in numerous Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) patent litigations. Jeff has been lead counsel in several dozen cases before the U.S. federal district courts and other tribunals, often as trial counsel, and argued numerous appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

He is a past President of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) and the United States national group of the Association Internationale pour la Protection de la Propriété Intellectuelle (AIPPI), as well as a fellow of both AIPLA and the American Bar Foundation.

In addition to his work on behalf of clients, Jeff has appeared as Counsel of Record for amicus curiae in numerous cases before the Supreme Court of the United States, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and other courts involving a diverse array of issues.

Jeff frequently writes and speaks on intellectual property and litigation issues, and he was an adjunct professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University from 1999 to 2012. He received his J.D. from that school, cum laude, and his B.S.Ch.E. from the University of Connecticut. He also served as an Alexander Judicial Fellow to the Honorable Marion T. Bennett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
