Practical Tips on Drafting Your First Patent Application

Program Highlights

Speakers:  
Jonathan Urbanek, Fitch Even Tabin & Flannery, LLP
Conor Hunt
, Fitch Even Tabin & Flannery, LLP
The presentation will address the practical aspects of drafting patent applications. Inventors frequently have trouble defining and describing the novelty of their own inventions. Patent attorneys must help the inventor distill a description that captures the essence of the invention and claims it as broadly as possible. And it all has to happen on a budget. The program will step through the process of drafting a patent application, from client interview through finished document. Pitfalls and cautionary advice will be discussed along the way. No CLE credit available.

How do I protect that? 
A mock client interview identifying protectable IP in terms of
patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.
Thursday, February 4, 2016
4:00 - 5:00 pm Eastern

 

Program Highlights

Speakers: 
Vishal Patel, Thompson & Knight, LLP
Trisha Singh, DaVita RX
Gary Sorden, Klemchuk, LLP
 
The presentation will address the practical intersections of the various intellectual property regimes. Clients, potential clients, acquaintances, and even family members often have IP law questions related to their products/inventions/businesses, but do not understand the distinctions between each different type of intellectual property. The lawyer’s job is to educate and to focus the discussion, identifying pressing issues in separate areas of intellectual property law. The program is designed as a mock client intake interview, illustrating how different IP law issues present themselves in the real world. No CLE credit available.
