If you are looking for a way to learn the basic concepts of patent law, this program is for you. In just one day, this complicated field will be boiled down to easy to understand, accessible sessions covering all types of patent issues that may arise in the context of every day practice and business management. Bringing together top experts in the field, this program will begin with a thorough foundation of patent principles, including what is patentable and how to prosecute and protect patents. Thereafter, delve into the issues that arise in the context of patent transactions, from licensing to mergers and acquisitions. In addition, learn how to evaluate the patent landscape and how that understanding may lead to an assertion of your patent rights or a pre-emptive action against third party patents. A broad overview of patent litigation, including coverage of recent case law, will be addressed in addition to actions in the International Trade Commission and U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

What you will learn
  • What are the parts of a patent application and what makes something patentable?
  • Learn about the lifecycle of a patent, from application-preparation through filing, prosecution, and issuance
  • Analysis of the patent landscape; asserting your rights and the new face of patent litigation: District Courts, ITC, IPR, and PGR
  • Examine the unique issues involved in patent infringement and litigation including claim construction, defenses, and relevant timelines
  • Explore patent issues that may arise in mergers and acquisitions transactions
  • Gain practical tips for patent licensing scenarios
