McAndrews, Held & Malloy, Ltd. Partners Christopher P. Singer and George Wheeler are part of the faculty for PLI’s Advanced Patent Prosecution Workshop 2018: Claim Drafting & Amendment Writing scheduled for September 27-28, 2018 in Chicago.
This advanced program is designed for corporate and other in-house practitioners or outside counsel with patent experience who wish to improve their patent preparation and prosecution skills, including drafting the specification and claims for U.S. and foreign patent applications, conducting examiner interviews, including a live demo of a WebEx interview, and drafting effective Office Action responses. Workshop participants will learn practical techniques for avoiding prosecution pitfalls and working with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to get client patent applications allowed. Faculty also will provide counsel on the implementation by the USPTO of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act, including post-grant review proceedings such as inter partes reviews, in addition to explaining the practical impact of significant Supreme Court and Federal Circuit decisions, e.g., Myriad, Mayo, Alice, and KSR.
