After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone ACI’s ITC Litigation & Enforcement in order to do our part to ensure the safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff.
Originally scheduled for June 23 – 24, 2020, ITC Litigation & Enforcement will now take place on August 24 – 25, 2020 in Washington, DC
We apologize for the inconvenience and will update this page very soon. Please check back shortly. We look forward to seeing you in August.
Section 337 investigations and litigation are evolving in important ways ─ from public interest considerations to novel ways of satisfying the domestic industry requirement and new approaches to Standard Essential Patents.
ACI’s 12th Annual Practitioners’ Think Tank on ITC Litigation and Enforcement returns to Washington this year to help you make sense of these developments, understand how they will impact you or your clients, and successfully manage disputes before the ITC.
You will hear from and connect with an outstanding line-up of speakers with a wide range of experience in everything from how to successfully obtain an exclusion order, manage modification proceedings, and present non-patent claims.
Join us at this premier national ITC conference for an unparalleled learning experience. This is your opportunity to engage in dialogue with industry leaders, gather the timeliest industry intelligence, and develop concrete strategies to obtain a favorable outcome in your unfair import disputes.
