Last Updated: March 13 2017

Morrison & Foerster LLP is pleased to host this video-linked conference presented by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators featuring speakers from the United States and Europe.

Panel 1: Innovative Approaches to Patent Arbitration: Lessons from the Trenches

Marc Peters, a partner in Morrison & Foerster's Palo Alto office, will moderate a discussion on specific ways to use the flexibility of arbitration to resolve patent-related disputes in a more efficient way than can be done in litigation. Topics to be discussed include effective case management techniques that involve a standard arbitration clause as well as innovative arbitration clauses that include special procedures. Mr. Peters will be joined by the following panelists:

  • P. Jean Baker, Vice President, American Arbitration Association, Washington, D.C.
  • Ignacio de Castro, Deputy Director, WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center, Geneva
  • Scott Donahey, Independent Arbitrator, Palo Alto
  • Cynthia Lopez, Global Head Licensing and Litigation, Novartis Services, Inc.
  • Harrie Samaras, Independent Arbitrator, Pennsylvania

Panel 2: Patent Law: A Public Policy Basis for Vacatur?

Steven Reisberg will moderate a discussion regarding the circumstances under which a patent arbitration award may (or should) be denied recognition or enforcement under the public policy exception of Article V of the New York Convention. Topics to be discussed include how the public policy exception has been interpreted by American and European courts; what aspects of patent law, if any, qualify as Mandatory Law; and the intersection of patent and competition law. Mr. Reisberg will be joined by the following panelists:

  • Annet van Hooft, Bird & Bird, Paris
  • Sherman Kahn, Mauriel Kapouytian Woods LLP, New York
  • Grant L. Kim, LimNexus LLP, San Francisco
  • Charles R. Macedo, Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein, LLP, New York
