Customised in-house training course
The content, presenters and format of this course are customised to your requirements.
This practical and interactive course will demystify the complex area of combined EU/US patent applications. The expert trainers will address the parallel – but substantially different – rules for drafting and prosecuting patents required by the Examiners and Boards of Appeal of the EPO and USPTO. They will highlight the risks and pitfalls to be aware of and explain how to avoid them or deal with them if challenged by the patent offices.
The comprehensive programme will ensure that you get to grips with the contrasting approaches of the EPO and USPTO and understand the experts’ techniques for drafting an application for, and responding to, rejections issued by the two offices.
During the practical exercises you will learn how to correct and modify a sample application to be filed with both the EPO and USPTO and practise developing effective arguments for the EPO and USPTO, taking into account hypothetical patent office rejections.
You will also have the opportunity to discuss your particular questions and concerns with the expert trainers, as well as share experiences with like-minded professionals.Key topics to be covered:
