Thomas I. Ross Presents at the IPLAC Patent Law Symposium 2010

October 1, 2010

Thomas I. Ross will be a speaker at the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago (IPLAC) Patent Law Symposium 2010, being held at the Union League Club of Chicago on October 1. Mr. Ross and Jeffery Stec of CRA International are jointly presenting on how recent Federal Circuit and district court decisions have clarified the standards for calculating reasonable royalty damages in patent infringement litigation and extended the “gatekeeper” role of trial judges to review of the patentee’s proposed damages case. Mr. Ross will provide a patent litigator’s perspective and Mr. Stec will consider the effect of the caselaw on the work of the testifying damages expert.

For a wide range of technologies and industries, including medical devices, mechanical products and electronics, Thomas I. Ross has litigated successfully in district courts throughout the United States and in the International Trade Commission (ITC) on matters involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. Mr. Ross has first-chaired numerous trials, both bench and jury, and has been the lead attorney on a number of appeals before the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals and other Circuit Courts.
