    Event Synopsis:
    Recent amendments to governing rules and Commission and Federal Circuit decisions continue to shape the practice of trade and intellectual property law in investigations under Section 337, 19 U.S.C. § 1337, in the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). On April 26, 2018, the ITC issued amendments to its Rules of Practice and Procedure, which are intended “to increase the efficiency of its section 337 investigations and reduce the burdens and costs on the parties and the agency.” The amendments apply to investigations instituted after June 7, 2018. Also in 2018, the Commission and Federal Circuit issued important opinions relating to issues specific to practice under Section 337, including domestic industry, public interest, and remedies.

They will present an in-depth analysis of the investigation framework. Speakers will also offer practical tips and strategies that will help litigators overcome challenges.
