    About Jason S. Angell
    Jason’s practice is focused on intellectual property litigation, antitrust litigation, and other complex matters for domestic and international technology companies. He represents both patent holders and parties defending against patent claims in infringement litigation in courts across the United States. Jason is also a member of the Patent Bar, and represents parties before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Jason has litigated cases involving technologies as diverse as computer software and hardware, semiconductors, consumer electronics devices, medical devices, and biotechnology.

    In 2013, Jason served as trial counsel in a price fixing case. Because his client’s guilty plea established liability prior to trial, the focus at trial was on the more than $770,000,000 in single damages the plaintiffs claimed. Despite the guilty plea, the jury awarded less than 1% of the damages claimed. The trial result was widely covered in domestic and foreign media. The trial result led to his firm being a finalist for Global Competition Review’s 2014 Litigation of the Year Award.

    In addition to being a member of the State Bar of California, Intellectual Property Section, Jason is an active member of the American Bar Association, Section on Intellectual Property Law and the American Bar Association Section on Antitrust Law.

    Event Synopsis:
    Over the past several years, the law of patent damages has been evolving at a rapid pace. The Supreme Court has recently weighed in on issues relating to enhanced damages awards, as well as damages available for infringement of design patent damages. Additionally, the lower courts continue to interpret and apply some of the most significant decisions of the recent past regarding apportionment to the value of the patented technology, the calculation of lost profits, and the use of settlement agreements in determining reasonable royalty damages. These decisions have created a dynamic—and uncertain—environment for both patent holders and those accused of infringing patents. Thus, it is crucial for all parties engaged in patent licensing and litigation to be aware of the most recent trends in order to best manage the risks associated with patent litigation.
    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as practical tips in patent damages law. Speakers will also provide an update on the recent trends and developments surrounding this significant topic.

    Key topics include:
    - Damages Under the Patent Act
    - Recent Court Decisions
    - Latest Trends and Developments
