Last Chance! The Top Ten Things In-House Counsel Need to Do to Prepare for The AIA’s March 2013 Deadline (Live Webinar)

With just a month to go, there are still a few things that you can do to get ready for the final phase of the America Invents Act (“AIA”). The America Invents Act corrections bill (passed by the U.S. Congress on Jan. 1, 2013) has tried to address some of the complications as well, with varying degrees of success.

In this follow-up presentation to our December 12, 2012 MBHB webinar, we will discuss some of the things that you can do while you still have time before the March 2013 deadline:

  • Prepare against the pitfalls of first-to file
  • Establish new priorities with your employees and with outside counsel
  • Assess commercialization/trade secret strategies
  • Consider the impact on your budgets
  • Review the changes from the AIA corrections bill (passed by the U.S. Congress on Jan. 1, 2013)
