Phillip Hirschhorn, shareholder in Buchanan’s Intellectual Property section, presented at the 2019 Federal Circuit Bar Association Global Series Innovation and IP Leadership Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii. In attendance were high ranking federal Judges from the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, Judges from key federal district courts, and leading Judges from Japan, South Korea and Germany. The conference also included IP thoughts leaders from around the world.
Philip participated in the panel “Global Series Major Challenges: Damages and Injunctions.” The panel wrestled with questions concerning the availability of injunctive relief in a worldwide market and the availability of other remedies in different jurisdictions. Philip took on the discussion of U.S. patent damages, and the factual underpinnings necessary to overcome a bench that is requiring more and better proofs of damage.
