Great course materials with plenty of detail which I can use in the future.

Sarah James, Patent Attorney, Unilever

Excellent all slides were relevant, clear, accurate and to the point plus actually useful to apply in my business. Richard is a great presenter and one of the best I have encountered at making a difficult topic interesting, (he) brought the course to life by using examples to explain points of law from his vast experience with litigation matters throughout his legal and commercial career.

Kieran O'Connell, Knowledge Transfer Case Manager (STEM), Technical University Dublin

Very relevant to point out the differences in the US audience (examiners, judges, jury) and the differences to European examiners. A lot of examples from court cases etc. Good, practical tips on how to find the golden mean when preparing a patent application that can work both in EP and in the US. Course content, presentation and speakers all amazing. An eye opener for anyone familiar with EP practice, but not so much with US practice (or vice versa) - avoiding ethnocentrism. Expert level course (ideal for me with 20 years EP experience). Very knowledgeable and experienced speakers who could pinpoint the trouble points for EP practitioners.

Lars Hald, Senior Patent Manager, Ambu A/S

A professional but also very open and informal approach, easy to interact and ask questions.

Kim Hed, Patent Specialist, Jotun AS

Overall opinion is that it was great. Interesting content, well presented, nice speakers that involved the audience. The level of difficulty and complexity was spot on for me, I knew about some things beforehand, but new information was scattered throughout which always kept things interesting.

Per Görts, Patent Consultant, Ström och Gulliksson

Excellent course and speakers with practical presentations. The course which every IP Administrator should attend at least once.

Heidi Lovikka, , BERGGREN OY AB

To have a clear and complete vision of the oral proceedings before the EPO. The webinar gave me an overview with some specific tips, so my objective is reached.

Alexandra Stefenel, European Patent Attorney (Thiochemicals), Arkema France SA

Very pedagogical, clear and easy to follow. Good use of PowerPoint. Not too much or too little information.

Hannes Jansson, European Patent Attorney, Zacco Sweden AB

The gradual introduction in the framework was a very nice methodology


It was very good and I would definitely come back and suggest my colleagues to attend the course. All speakers were very good and well prepared. I think the topics in regard to EP and US were more informational for me and brought on more new aspects.
