The Global Series sessions, part of an on-going dialogue, address topics of global significance at a senior level of discussion. Working closely with government representatives, adjudicators, corporate leaders, litigation leaders, academics, and others in the global community, the Series responds, in real time, to emerging challenges. The on-going Series includes participants from Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United States, the People’s Republic of China, Canada, Brazil, and other countries.

Recognizing the challenges of 2020, the Global Series session in the Fall of 2020 has moved to a virtual setting. Panels will take place from late September through late January 2021 on current hot topics in the international community.  Our next session is listed below:

January 28, 2021, 2PM ET: The Evolution of the Doctrine of Equivalents (or Not) in Five Jurisdictions
