AIPLA CLE Webinar: Drafting Considerations to Provide Flexibility in Post Grant Proceedings - EP vs. US
June 22, 2023 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
90 Minutes CLE
Drafting patent applications that survive post grant proceedings at home as well as at the EPO poses a challenge for multiple reasons. One reason is that the law regarding added matter is not uniform. The EPO's approach is very strict in comparison to other jurisdictions and therefore requires a different approach than the "classic" combination of specific embodiments and broad claims. This webinar will address recent developments and will shine a light on the possible challenges and pitfalls. Learn best practices and drafting considerations that not only put you in a better position during prosecution but ultimately result in stronger claims that survive post-grant proceedings at home and abroad.
Presented by: Jeremias Wollschlaeger, Hoffmann Eitle & Salvador Bezos, Sterne Kessler
