International Patent Forum 2014: who's speaking on litigation?

Last month, PatLit posted this note about the International Patent Forum 2014, organised by Managing Intellectual Property magazine for 18 and 19 March. When that note was posted, it linked to a provisional list of speakers that did not specify who was participating in which session.  The programme has now crystallised and you can get the full details here.

The IPKat's post yesterday suggested that, given recent world events, the session entitled "Russia Focus" on the first day may be memorable.  For investors and portfolio planners this will certainly be the case, but the attention of patent litigators will however be focused elsewhere, and various seasoned campaigners, including Nicola Dagg and David Por (Allen & Overy), Ian Hiscock (Novartis), Gregory Gramenopoulos and Timothy May (Finnegans) and Tony Piotrowski (MPEG LA) will be among those sharing their experience.

A reminder: if any PatLit reader who is attending would like to take some notes and share them with readers of this blog, that would be greatly appreciated!
