“Contemplating the Obvious: How to Present Obviousness in a Post-KSR World?” Practising Law Institute

Jenner & Block Partner Timothy J. Barron was a presenter during a seminar examining patent eligibility, prior art and obviousness. Entitled “Contemplating the Obvious: How to Present Obviousness in a Post-KSR World,” Mr. Barron’s session explored the development of the defense of obviousness after the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2007 KSR decision and provided practical tips to practitioners for most effectively presenting and opposing obviousness defenses in district courts and patent office proceedings.  Sponsored by the Practicing Law Institute, the program was held on June 14, 2016, in San Francisco. 

Mr. Barron focuses his practice on patent litigation.  He has extensive experience in major patent infringement trials and arbitrations involving life sciences, including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and medical devices, as well as in a wide variety of other technologies.
