AIPPI Australia 2019 Seminar Series:
Enjoin or Expedite: Is this the New Dilemma for Patentees in Australia?
Presented by Lisa Taliadoros and Tom Cordiner QC
Melbourne and Sydney, 6pm, 30 October 2019
Some recent refusals by the Federal Court to grant interlocutory injunctive relief, and the Court’s instigation of new case management principles that encourage parties to adopt expedited or truncated hearing processes, have caused practitioners to wonder whether there has been a fundamental change in approach by the Court to interlocutory injunctions. But does it really represent a new approach? Has there really been any movement of the goal posts? Are practitioners now really facing a new dilemma in advising clients to seek interlocutory injunctive relief rather than a speedy trial? Can a “rocket docket” really meet an intellectual property rights holders’ needs? If so, when and how?
6pm on 30 October 2019 (immediately following the AIPPI Australia AGM)
Melbourne: Allens, 101 Collins Street
Sydney: Allens, Deutsche Bank Place, 126 Phillip Street (via live video from Melbourne)
