Patent Litigation Briefing: The Law and Ethics of Extortion (Orange County)

Join Stan Gibson, Chairman of JMBM’s Patent Litigation Group, and Anthony Pacheco, Chair of the Firm’s Corporate Defense and Investigations Group, for a seminar discussing the evolving California and federal law regarding extortion statutes and the application of pertinent ethical codes and issues.

This presentation covers criminal and civil claims of extortion in numerous contexts, ranging from:

  • Alleged extortion by patent and intellectual property trolls
  • Pre-litigation demands by lawyers
  • The extortion of entertainers and celebrities
  • Business network takeovers by hackers
  • The role of prosecutors and defense attorneys
  • Emerging trends in white collar and non-white collar cases

Developments in this area are reshaping how lawyers should think carefully about extortion and its ethical implications to the everyday practice of law.
