The Patent Cooperation Treaty Seminar brings together leading experts to discuss everything you need to know about PCT. Now in its 17th year, this program has been an exceptional learning experience for novices and experts alike. The entire PCT process will be covered in detail, from the initial filing to entries into the national stage.

Who Should Attend 

  • Practicing Attorneys, Patent Agents, Paralegals and Administrators

What You Will Learn:

  • Explore strategic decisions and best practices for applicants in various stages of development, from startups to large companies.
  • Learn how to extract the most from the PCT system on behalf of applicants with lot of money or those with limited funds.
  • Discuss whether it may be better to maximize patent term or to get a patent issued sooner. 

Already Familiar with PCT? 

If you are already familiar with PCT, get up-to-speed about more recent developments. A panel of active PCT patent attorneys from the US and Europe will lead two days of presentations, discussions and debate for your active participation. An official from the USPTO and a consultant from WIPO will be invited to offer explanations about PCT procedures, reforms, office policies and other invaluable information.
