Intellectual Property Disputes Committee Presents: Mediating Conflict in the ITC

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 12:30pm

Hogan Lovells, 555 13th St NW, Washington, DC 20004

Either in person or via dial-in, please join us for Mediating Conflict in the ITC, presented by the CPR Intellectual Property Disputes Committee and hosted by Hogan Lovells. This event will feature The Hon. Theodore R. Essex (Ret.) and H. Jonathan Redway of Dickinson Wright discussing the advantages and challenges of using mediation to resolve IP disputes in fast-paced International Trade Commission proceedings, with reflection on the differences from U.S. District Court practice. 


Attendees are encouraged to bring their own questions and ideas to this rare interactive opportunity to hear a view from the bench on subjects such as:

Is the timing ever right? When are ITC disputants motivated to mediate?

Does the speed of ITC proceedings encourage or discourage parties to use mediation?

Should ITC judges actively encourage mediation? 

Advantages to bringing in a mediator early?

Is it possible to mediate a Standard Essential Patent conflict?
