Webinar: Drafting the “Global” Patent Application

Finnegan-Hosted Event; Webinar; Speaking Engagement

June 14, 2017


It all starts with drafting. A poorly drafted patent application, more often than not, leads to poor patent protection. The goal of providing enforceable claims starts and ends with a well drafted application. And what may be a well drafted European patent application may not provide the same level of protection in the United States (and vice versa!!). The differences can be confusing for even the most seasoned practitioner: Patent Eligibility vs. Technical Effect; Enablement vs. Sufficiency; and maybe the most frustrating of all—Written Description vs. Added Matter.

Join the usual suspects from Finnegan in the first of their four-part detailed discussion of patent prosecution strategies from drafting to grant, including:

  • The evolving definitions of patent-eligible subject matter
  • How much is enough to file? Sufficiency, enablement, and written description
  • Helping the examiner understand the invention: claim structure, clarity and amendment
  • Thinking ahead: providing fallback patentability positions and claims for enforcement
  • What can and cannot be fixed after filing
