IP Dispute Resolution in the U.S.

19 Oct 2017

Public CPD points: 3 | Practice Area: Intellectual Property | Training Category: Advanced


  • What is the risk of being sued by a patent troll in the United States?
  • Will foreign companies still be sued in the Eastern District of Texas after the U.S. Supreme Court decision in TC Heartland?
  • How extensive are discovery obligations in the United States? What is a Markman hearing?

The United States is one of the most attractive markets in the world for global businesses. At the same time, doing business in the country can be challenging.

Learn about the IP dispute resolution system in the United States from an experienced attorney from Finnegan, one of the world’s leading IP law firms practicing U.S. and European law. As IP professionals in Singapore tend to view foreign systems through the lens of Singapore law, a leading IP lawyer in Singapore will also guide participants by focusing on the differences between our respective systems and the implications of these differences.



The following professionals are highly encouraged to attend:

  • In-House Counsel
  • IP Professionals
  • Lawyers
  • Government officers who manage international engagement or promote trade in the United States
  • Professionals who have a keen interest in this topic

This seminar is organized by the IP Academy and jointly sponsored by the IP Academy and Finnegan. Participants get to enjoy a subsidized rate of only $100/- (before GST) (Usual rate: $250/- (before GST)).
