Noon CLE meetings are typically held at the Belo Mansion on the fourth Thursday of every month (with some exceptions).
For in person/live meetings, the members usually participate in a pre-meeting network activity 30 minutes before the CLE presentation begins.
We also host periodic breakfast CLE roundtable discussions at a North Dallas location on important IP topics.

"Apportionment in Patent Damage Calculations,"
Speakers: Bethany Salpietra and Jeff Becker, both of Baker Botts.
In recent years, juries have awarded patent owners increasingly large damages, only for the Federal Circuit Court to overturn these awards for lack of apportionment. This presentation explores how to apportion patent damages by providing an overview of relevant Federal Circuit decisions. Join us for a deep dive discussion concerning how to apportion damages for a patented invention, including an overview of how apportionment impacts the reasonable royalty analysis and what the Federal Circuit considers a sufficiently comparable license.
