MBHB founding partner Bradley J. Hulbert will speak at two upcoming Licensing Executives Society Meetings.

At the LES Spring Meeting/International Conference, held in Chicago on May 4-7, Hulbert will co-present a session entitled “Assessing Patent Quality: New Perspectives in Patent Prosecution”.

  • With recent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court and Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, looming possibilities of patent reform, continued increases in litigation expense and unexpected results in trial court decisions, many companies are moving toward a more value-focused approach in patent prosecution. The value propositions of patent programs are coming under heightened scrutiny. Licensing campaigns have become increasingly risky, and managers are under increased pressure to determine whether or not prosecution costs should be incurred far in advance of any measurable return from such costs. This panel will review the compelling drivers for assessing the strategic worth of a patent program and discuss measures for improving the odds for patent issuance, predictable enforceability and successful licensing.
