"We successfully represented the defendants in London v. Carson, which was an important doctrine of equivalents case at the time. As a result of that case, I was invited to join the panel in a seminar for the Patent Resources Group entitled "'Designing Around' Valid U.S. Patents." Every aspect of patent infringement is discussed in this seminar, with cookbooks on how to construe patent claims and how to analyze equivalents.
We won the London case on summary judgment of no infringement. We won a design patent case on summary judgment of no infringement, too. In another case the judge held some claims invalid on summary judgment, which is challenging because of the presumption of validity. The Federal Circuit affirmed all of those decisions. In all of the cases a jury trial was avoided, which is important to clients."
"I am not interested in areas of practice outside of patents, but I would like to see the patent bar take more interest in revising the statute to address new issues raised by new technology. The Federal Circuit is constrained by the present statute and Supreme Court decisions, and Congress cannot respond quickly to the issues raised by the dramatic changes in technology over the last 30 years. The patent bar is best positioned to work through problems quickly and correctly, and I would like to see more of that."
