A Short Course in European Patent Drafting and Prosecution for the US Practitioner

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This lunch program will address what every US patent attorney should know about the drafting of patent applications for eventual prosecution in Europe. The standards for priority, amendments, obviousness, enablement and written description are so different between the US and Europe that an application which is drafted for the USPTO may have trouble succeeding before the EPO. Our speaker, an experienced EPA from one of Europe’s leading biotech hubs, the Medicon Valley (Eastern Denmark and southern Sweden) will guide you through a recommended strategy for drafting and prosecuting European applications. He will also provide an update on the future Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent to come into effect.
