 Andrei Iancu, Director of the USPTO, has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at a patent litigation event to be held in Washington D.C. this November.

Mr Iancu’s appearance at Patent Litigation 2019 will be one of the first opportunities following June’s hearings to listen him speak directly about their outcome.

He will be leading a panel discussing the state of play with 101 and the Federal Circuit’s impact as the PTAB’s appeals court.
