Online CLE ITC 2019 Landscape

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE ITC 2019 Landscape Webinar. In June 2018, the final changes on the U.S. International Trade Commission’s (ITC) Rules of Practice and Procedures took effect. Intended for more efficient and speedy investigations, the ITC amended some of its pre-existing rules and practices including the 100-Day Pilot Program. These new developments in the ITC may have profound impact on regulatory enforcements, more specifically on Section 337 investigations.  

As the future of the ITC landscape is still uncertain, companies must keep themselves abreast of these new developments to ensure compliance. They should revisit their existing practices to make sure that they are aligned with the ITC’s directives.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the emerging ITC litigation and enforcement updates. Speakers will also present potential risk issues to avoid as well as tips and strategies to overcome pitfalls.

This Webcast will include the following topics:

  • ITC Litigation and Enforcement: A Lookback
  • Emerging Trends and Developments
  • Notable Court Rulings and Decisions
  • Practical Tips and Strategies
  • Risk Issues and Challenges
  • What Lies Ahead
