Aims and objectives

The European Court of Justice has issued many important SPC decisions in the last few years: Medeva, Neurim, Actavis. The latest ones have raised more questions than have given answers. Our speaker, one of the leading SPC experts in Europe, will discuss the referrals with you. He will put the decisions in context and will show you the consequences for national court practice and for your application practice. Dr. Brückner will also give some hints as to pending referrals and yet unsolved questions which might be the subject of future referrals.
Who should attend
Do you work in a corporate patent or IP department, or as a patent attorney in private practice and need an update on the ECJ’s SPC case-law? Then, this course is intended for you. Prior knowledge of patents is a requisite.
Speaker
Dr. Christopher Brückner
Patent Attorney/ Pharmacist, Dennemeyer & Associates, Munich (Germany)
