No question about it, patent practice in the pharma and biotech fields is becoming even more complex. Recent Supreme Court and Federal Circuit decisions and evolving responses to the implementation of the America Invents Act (AIA) are changing the patent prosecution and litigation landscapes.
Please join our workshop for in-depth discussions on the following topics:
- Effective Strategies for Selecting, Preparing, and Defending Expert Witnesses
- Patent Prosecution Strategies in View of the AIA and the Developing Law of Patent Eligibility Under 35 U.S.C. § 101
- Akamai, Commil, and Willfulness—Oh my! Recent Changes in the Law and Best Practices for Establishing Infringement
Please register for either program by Thursday, October 9, 2014. There is no charge to attend.
