Samuel W. Braver, Chair of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney’s Patent Litigation and Product Liability practice groups, was recently featured in a Q&A article in Law360.
In the article, Braver discusses one of the most challenging cases he ever worked on: his first patent infringement trial, which was an area of law in which – at that time – he had not spent a lot of professional time. Since then, Braver has spent more time in IP litigation, a practice that he enjoys.
“Reinventing parts of our practice to adapt to developing areas of litigation is what we, as trial lawyers, do, and that was extremely rewarding and challenging as a professional,” explains Braver.
When asked what aspects of the practice area are in need of reform, Braver explains, “The number of trials in many locales is fast diminishing, and the opportunity for less experienced lawyers to learn and gain experience is also fast declining… We need to work with our trial courts, obviously mindful to budgeting constraints, to preserve the trial and jury trial practice and reverse the trend.”
