Advisory Board


The Advisory Board assists the officers in shaping the long range direction of The Naples Roundtable as well as identifying topics worthy of consideration for the annual Patent Experts Conference.  Complementary to the Amicus Committee, the Advisory Board examines issues presented for consideration to the United States Supreme Court and Patent Trial and Appeal Board. The Naples Roundtable and Leahy Institute of Advanced Patent Studies remain independent, and the views expressed may not be representative of the views of anyone attending or participating in the Naples Roundtable or the Leahy Institute of Advanced Patent Studies.

David J. Kappos, Chair of Advisory Board
