  • Interactive Workshop on the Use of Remote Expert Witness - Part 2 (2/10/2021)

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 02/10/2021 at 3:00 PM (CST)

    The program will consist of a series of live demonstrations by experts and judges.

    The Illinois Supreme Court rules now provide that expert (and other) testimony can be heard remotely, which can save time, money for litigants and is more convenient for all involved. The Forensic Expert Witnesses Association (FEWA) and The Chicago Bar Association (CBA) have joined forces to offer a 2-part series which will provide guidance for Illinois judges and attorneys alike in determining how expert testimony should be conducted and regulated. Expert testimony in jury trials will be the focus of this second installment of the series.

    The program will consist of a series of live demonstrations by experts and the following respected Judges: Alison Conlon, Thomas More Donnelly, Patrick Sherlock and Sanjay Tailor who will be the trial litigators. All participants, including members of the bench, the bar and the expert community, will be allowed to make assessments in real time. Bench and Bar audience members will then have an opportunity to share and receive feedback from participating judges, experts and litigators, during an interactive session following the demonstrations to determine the most effective and compelling best practices.  

    Current and retired members of the Judiciary are complimentary.  Please RSVP to Jennifer Byrne at jbyrne@chicagobar.org.

    How Patent Infringement Concerns May Shape COVID-19 Vaccine Development and Deployment (Live Webcast Only: IL MCLE Credit)

    TOPIC: How Patent Infringement Concerns May Shape COVID-19 Vaccine Development and Deployment

    DESCRIPTION: The COVID-19 pandemic has driven pharmaceutical companies around the world to shift their focus to develop a safe and effective vaccine and/or therapeutic treatment as quickly as possible. However, the urgency and speed at which research and trials are being conducted leaves little time for companies to assess legal risks – including potential patent infringement. This program will provide an in-depth discussion of the options available to the Federal Government to shield potential infringers from liability in order to accelerate vaccine delivery and meet public demand. Also discussed will be how patent damages may be assessed in light of this unprecedented situation if companies are not immunized of infringement by the government.

    SPEAKER(S)/ORGANIZATION:  David Duski is a Director in BDO’s Forensic Investigation and Litigation Services group and leads its intellectual property consulting practice. Throughout his career, David has provided dispute resolution services for cases involving patent infringement, trademark infringement, trade secret misappropriation, false advertising, breach of contract, business interruption, legal malpractice, and product liability, among others. He has also provided financial and economic consulting for attorneys and corporate clients.
