We have nine meetings each Term, which runs from September through June (there is no December meeting).
We meet at a variety of Bay Area locations: most often the Peninsula, San Francisco, and San Jose.
Next Meeting: November 20, 2019 at 6 p.m.
Please join us for our third meeting of the 2019-2020 Term of the SF Bay Area IP Inn of Court!
The November meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at MacArthur Park restaurant in Palo Alto. Our presentation will be: “Show Me the Money: Ethical Considerations in Third-Party Patent Litigation Financing.” Third-party financing of patent litigation is increasing in use and importance. But how many litigators and other IP attorneys advising clients know the basic logistics of third-party litigation funding, let alone the ethical considerations involved? An expert panel will address these issues and answer questions from attendees who want to learn more about this hot topic. MCLE Ethics credits will be sought for this presentation.
Optionally, each attendee should download on to their iOS and/or Android devices the app available at www.socrative.com as the Pupillage Group will experiment with some on-line polling during the meeting so that questions, comments, and even criticisms can be compiled rapidly in addition to getting added information anonymously about the kinds of financing transactions that Inn members have done over the last few years.
The presentation will begin close to our standard 6:00 pm start time. Dinner will follow the presentation – in the form, please select your entrée.
