Abstract
The past years have seen the Federal Circuit’s continuous effort to provide proper guidance on analyzing and apportioning damage claims in patent infringement cases. This area of law is being constantly shaped by recent and notable case decisions such as the case verdicts on Exmark Manufacturing Co. Inc. v. Briggs & Stratton and Finjan Inc. v. Blue Coat Systems, Inc. Thus, practitioners must be well-versed with emerging trends, recent case laws, and proper damage apportionment strategies to accurately capture the value of their client’s infringed product.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the key considerations in apportioning damages in patent infringement cases. Speakers will also present practical tips and strategies to avoid pitfalls in this evolving regulatory climate.
