Patent utility issues on the agenda at US-Canada Forum

Benchmark Litigation/Benchmark Canada’s inaugural Cross-Border Forum will focus on trends and issues facing Canadian and US contentious practitioners on both sides of the border

The forum takes place at the Essex House in New York on September 27 2012 and is presented by Benchmark Canada, the Canadian edition of the Benchmark brand of litigation-based directories.

Attendance is free for private practice firms with headquarters in the US and $1095 for those with headquarters in Canada. Registration is available online.

Panellists J Sheldon Hamilton and Colin Ingram from Canada’s largest and most prominent IP firm Smart & Biggar will discuss litigating patent utility issues and how the US and Canada diverge.

Other panels include securities regulation, the Consumer Product Safety Act, critical trends in financial and consumer class actions, insolvency, and securities class actions. Speakers on these panels include representatives from the firms Bennett Jones, Fasken Martineau, Hunter Litigation Chambers, and Allen & Overy.

Canadian and international counsel and leading litigators are scheduled to attend the forum, which will provide a comprehensive platform for Canadian and US institutions navigating the course of cross-border dispute resolution, as well as opportunities for networking.
