AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technology-based patent analysis services and software solutions provider Patent Calls today announced its collaboration with Dr. Tom Rhyne for an exclusive limited enrollment Patent Expert Witness Boot Camp to be held at the Lakeway Resort near Austin, Texas in February 2011.
Dr. Rhyne, who will lead the three-day Boot Camp, is a broadly experienced expert witness who has provided in-courtroom testimony in over three dozen federal patent cases and ITC hearings over the past thirty years. He will be joined by legal and technical staff members from Patent Calls, as well as selected guest lecturers.
Carefully designed to be a program that will be “Conducted by Experts for Experts,” Boot Camp participants will learn that serving as an expert witness is a unique and productive way to use their technical knowledge. “By their nature, patent trials are highly charged competitive environments for companies and attorneys who have a great deal at stake,” Dr. Rhyne has explained, “and an expert witness is often a key part of that process. I am pleased to have this opportunity to share my experience as a witness with others.”
Patent Calls’ Patent Expert Witness Boot Camp will provide an opportunity for individuals who have some patent expert witness experience – or who are aspiring to become an expert witness – to benefit from both intensive instruction and interactive training that are intended to increase their effectiveness and appeal to potential clients. Participants will receive a highly integrated combination of classroom instruction, team exercises, and simulated examination and testimony that will serve to challenge them and thus maximize their learning experiences.
“Patent Calls is pleased to collaborate with Dr. Rhyne to offer a first of its kind intense yet instructive Patent Expert Witness Boot Camp,” said Patent Calls’ CEO, Dr. Jose Melendez. “The Boot Camp will provide new and emerging expert witnesses with the knowledge and tools they need to effectively break down the complexities of patented technologies for the benefit of trial judges and juries.”
The Boot Camp is scheduled to be held February 15-18, 2011 in Lakeway, Texas. Due to the nature of the participatory Boot Camp format, class size will be highly limited and available on a first come, first served basis. There are a limited number of sponsorships available for the event.
