IP Panel: How Intellectual Property Law Impacts
Get an overview of the variety of mechanisms available to protect
an organization's technology and intellectual property, including
patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and non-compete
clauses. Panelists will focus in particular on state law remedies
for misappropriation of intellectual property and address the newly
developing area of potential state law remedies against coercive
infringements threats by "patent trolls."
Bankruptcy Panel: Kicking Over the Chessboard --
Everything a Civil Litigator Needs to Know
Our panel of distinguished bankruptcy litigators will discuss the
most important topics non-bankruptcy practitioners need to know
when a litigant files for bankruptcy. Learn how the bankruptcy
filing will impact the procedural and substantive aspects of the
case, and be prepared to react quickly. Panelists will provide
pointers on how to get a case back on track.
Business Litigation Panel: The Perspective from
the Other Side of the Bench
This presentation will examine realistic, substantive and
procedural quandaries that attorneys encounter on a regular basis
-- from the perspective of the bench. A distinguished panel of
judges from federal court and state court, including the Business
Litigation Session, and an arbitrator will provide insight on best

that attorneys face as a part of their practice.
CLE credit will be offered.
