A Practical Guide on ITC Section 337 Investigations: Dodging Pitfalls and Maximizing Opportunities
U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) investigations have been on the rise over the past years. Just in the first quarter of 2020, a significant increase in the number of lawsuits and ancillary cases have been launched, as well as inquiries underway. The ITC also continues its efforts and investigations under Section 337 despite the extended postponement of its in-person hearings because of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Given the increasing number of complaints and risks of exclusion orders, companies should be aware of the methods used to avoid or terminate investigations under Section 337. They must also be cautious of the new developments especially with the prevalence of COVID-19.
In this LIVE Webcast, ITC litigation lawyers Robert B. Goldman (Charles River Associates) and Cyrus Frelinghuysen (Greenberg Traurig, LLP) will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of recent ITC Section 337 investigations. Speakers will also present important issues surrounding this significant topic including the risks and opportunities amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
