Brought to you by the Young Practitioners Committee
Recently, the Federal Court issued a Notice to the Profession intended to “increase proportionality in complex litigation”, which includes several “best practice” guidelines that case management judges have already been implementing. In this webinar, an experienced intellectual property litigator and a prothonotary of the Federal Court will discuss the implications of the Notice, and how it will likely affect ongoing litigation and future proceedings. Focus will be placed on how practitioners should interpret the language of the Notice, what it actually means for Canadian intellectual property litigation (particularly patent and PM(NOC) litigation), and accessing justice for litigants.
