The Naples Roundtable, with the guidance of Conference Chairman and President, Gary Hoffman, conducts annual conferences to bring together experts in patent law for the purpose of exchanging ideas on how to improve the patent system. These conferences mark a radical departure from the classic lecture format of typical CLE programs. Instead, participation is limited to recognized experts, and the conferences are structured to facilitate free discussions and exchanges of ideas on the hottest patent law topics of the day.
The Leahy Institute of Advanced Patent Studies will be held at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club on February 17-20, 2018. The conference will address topics that call for change to improve and strengthen the U.S. patent system. As in the past, the conference is limited to recognized experts and is by invitation only.
