Bayard Directors Stephen B. Brauerman and Justin R. Alberto assisted in planning the 2016 District of Delaware Bench & Bar Conference, which took place in Wilmington, DE from May 19-20, 2016. The conference was sponsored by the Delaware Chapter of the Federal Bar Association in conjunction with the Federal Circuit Bar Association and featured core sessions on bankruptcy, intellectual property and criminal law. Attendance at the 2016 conference more than doubled from 2015, the first year it was held, and the scope and size of the programs expanded.
Mr. Brauerman chaired the conference planning committee, hosted a Q&A session with Senator Christopher Coons following the Senator’s plenary address to the conference and moderated a panel entitled, “IP Track: Venue, Forum Selection and Other Hot Topics in IP Litigation” that featured Circuit Judge Kara Stoll, Chief District Judge Leonard P. Stark, District Judges Rodney Gilstrap and Richard Seeborg.
Mr. Alberto helped present Thursday night’s “A Taste of Delaware and the Brandywine Valley” dinner, planned bankruptcy sessions on both days and introduced the bankruptcy track programs on Friday.
