popowitz cle

Assouline and Berlowe Registered Patent Attorney Greg Popowitz recently recorded a lecture for the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education (NACLE), focusing on a general Intellectual Property Overview and 2019 IP case law update.

Mr. Popowitz detailed the fundamental differences of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets and the nuances of each area of Intellectual Property.  He also discussed some recent key court decisions, including Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) holding the disparagement clause of the Lanham Act unconstitutional under the First Amendment and paving the way for the mark F.U.C.T.  In addition, Mr. Popowitz discussed SCOTOS’ resolution of a circuit split, holding that a party must have completed the registration process before filing suit in federal court, as opposed to simply applying for protection.

Partner Eric Assouline Presents at Deposition Skills Training Course

Certified Deposition Transcript

Cases are often won or lost through depositions.  A well taken deposition can make the difference at all the stages of the litigation, including mediation, summary judgment, and trial.

All litigation attorneys must treat depositions as the most critical aspect of the case.  A deposition is as close to hand to hand combat as litigation will become.  The deposition is the only time that the parties and the attorneys will all be together at the same time without a judge or mediator present.  It is the first time the parties and their counsel will all be starring one another in the eyes to size up their adversaries.how to take a deposition

Every litigator must ask themselves:

Would I like to be more effective when taking depositions?

Would I like to learn from attorneys who are experienced in taking depositions?

Would I like to learn from attorneys who have crafted a CLE seminar that will provide me with practical, useful advice?

If yes, you’ll will want to sign up for the upcoming CLE program Mastering the Deposition: A Critical Skills Workshop, presented by Pincus Professional Education. This program received outstanding evaluations last year, so you don’t want to miss it.
