Traps for the Unwary Prosecutor: What Practitioners Should Know About U.S. and European Patent Practice (Live MBHB Webinar)

Tues. Sept. 15, 2020 | 10:00-11:15 a.m. CT | Live MBHB Webinar via WebEx

There are several aspects of U.S. and European patent practice that can, if patent practitioners are not aware of them, lead to issues during the prosecution of U.S. and European applications. Many of these aspects are unique to either U.S. or European patent practice. In this MBHB webinar presentation, Charlotte Teall of Forresters, Simon O’Brien of D Young & Co, and Sarah Fendrick and Donald Zuhn of MBHB will review some of these traps for the unwary patent prosecutor and provide helpful tips for prosecuting applications in the U.S. and Europe.

Among the topics that the panel will discuss are priority claims, double patenting, novelty-only prior art and disclaimers, and data requirements and plausibility in Europe, and Patent Term Adjustment, Information Disclosure Statements, inequitable conduct, and obviousness-type double patenting in the U.S.

Presenter(s):MBHB attorneys Donald Zuhn, Ph.D. and Sarah Fendrick, Ph.D., and Forresters attorney Charlotte Teall; and D Young & Co attorney Simon O’Brien
