While it is true that patent laws in different jurisdictions share many common concepts, there are many differences that must be appreciated to effectively manage your portfolio and work with outside counsel. A proven strategy in Europe may have the opposite effect in the U.S. For example, differences in patentability standards can significantly impact the prosecution and enforcement of your EP and U.S. patents. Also, a claim amendment strategy that would lack support in Europe may be the best strategy in the U.S.
Join us for a detailed look at the key issues arising from the differences in U.S. and EP prosecution and litigation practice. This seminar will address how to best apply your EP strategies and practice to your U.S. portfolio. Effectively communicating your objectives and tactics to your colleagues across the pond will lead to both cost savings and stronger protection.
Topics will include:
Strategies to maximize value when prosecuting patents in multiple jurisdictions
Adapting your EP strategies to challenge competitor patents in the U.S.
Practical examples for recognizing issues and communicating effectively with your counsel
Recent developments in the US impacting your patent filing and enforcement practices

Finnegan is deeply saddened by the death of our colleague Donald R. Dunner, who passed away on October 16, 2019, after a life of dedication and inspiration to many in IP law. Don was in a category all his own with his talent and distinct knowledge of IP law. His direct approach and enthusiasm for work and life touched everyone who worked with him, and we will miss him dearly.
