Re-establishment of Rights Proceedings at the EPO

Our speakers will not only give an systematic overview of the most relevant case-law but will also show recent trends with regards to re-establishment of rights proceedings at the EPO.
Topics
  • Criteria for re-establishment of rights
  • EPO BoA: case-law summary, lessons to be learned
  • Insights into the Boards' approach and reasoning
  • (Re-)organization of a patent law firm/department: best practice discussion
  • Workshop: analysis of detailed requests for restoration
  • Petitions for review - overview

Aims and objectives

Re-establishment of Rights proceedings at the EPO is a remedy of last resort to rectify a missed deadline. Failure to successfully re-establish a patent right represents not only a loss of the patent right but often an opportunity for financial gain. Therefore, every patent practitioner needs to know how to most effectively navigate this remedy which has been shaped by more than 400 decisions of the Boards of Appeal of the EPO. Our speakers will not only give an systematic overview of the most relevant case-law but will also show recent trends. Attendees will gain valuable insights into the Boards' approach and reasoning. This seminar also provides critical guidance for organizing a patent law firm or patent department to both minimize the risk of missing a term and maximize the probability that a request for restoration will be successful.
Who should attend
  • European Patent Attorneys
  • Heads and members of corporate patent and IP departments
