Dechert IP and litigation partner Katherine A. (Kassie) Helm, Ph.D. was featured in a Q&A published by Law.com’s Skilled in the Art, an IP newsletter written by Scott Graham, about the ins and outs of the transfer cases out of the Western District of Texas. Following the latest challenge to U.S. District Judge Alan Albright’s stance on these transfer cases, some lawyers are debating whether the Fifth Circuit’s convenience factors, such as location of witnesses and documents, still apply in 2020. In this Q&A, she and former Dechert associate and now solo practitioner Joe Abraham discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the practice of law; the types of arguments that may be successful to transfer a case from Waco, Texas; and the differences in jury pools in Texas.
