Mediating Tech and Patent Cases:  Presentation by SVAMC with Stanford Law School

I had the distinct pleasure of working with other SVAMC Tech List Members, Harrie Samaras and Rod Thompson, along with Janet Martinez, Director of the Gould Negotiation and Mediation Program at Stanford Law School.  The presentation was in two parts directed to (1) preparing for mediation in tech and patent cases and representing clients at the mediation session.   We were gratified to folks from all over the world tune in to our webcast.  They asked great questions, too!

The sessions are now available online at SVAMC and Stanford Law School Mediation in the Patent/Technology Case: Part I – YouTube and SVAMC and Stanford Law School Mediation in the Patent/Technology Case: Part II – YouTube
