Durie Tangri LLP

Please join SFIPLA and its panelists Hon. William Cahill (Ret.) of JAMS and Mark LeHocky of ADR Services, Inc. as they discuss best practices in mediating in general and specifically the ins and outs of mediating intellectual property disputes.

  • Hon. William Cahill (Ret.) is a reputable and sought-after neutral throughout the country who regularly travels to hear cases. He has successfully mediated and arbitrated thousands of cases, including business and contract disputes, securities matters, class actions, insurance, real property, engineering and infrastructure, employment, intellectual property, and legal and other professional malpractice matters.  Prior to becoming a full time neutral in 2000, Judge Cahill spent nearly ten years as a judge in San Francisco County Superior Court and before that he was a partner and a trial lawyer at a top law firm. His experience gives him unique insight into how alternative dispute resolution can be used to resolve matters efficiently and effectively.
  • For over 30 years, Mark LeHocky has mediated, managed and resolved hundreds of cases nationwide ranging from intellectual property, antitrust and other business disputes, to real estate, class and individual consumer and employment cases, as well as individual and mass torts. For this work, Mr. LeHocky has been repeatedly recognized among the Best Lawyers in America for Mediation.  Mr. LeHocky’s approach is shaped by having worn nearly all professional hats in the legal arena – as a litigator representing plaintiffs and defendants, as a public company general counsel resolving hundreds of litigation matters, and as a senior executive and a client. Central to all of that work is helping decision makers of all types make realistic, risk-based choices based upon alternative scenarios and the practical tradeoffs of different courses.
