Best Practices for Parallel EP & US Patent Applications

In this seminar our speakers will develop with you guidelines for preparing a patent application optimised for undergoing parallel procedures at the EPO and USPTO.
Topics
  • EPO vs. USPTO: important differences to keep in mind when drafting patent claims and applications
  • Recommendations for prosecuting an application through parallel grant procedures at the EPO and USPTO
  • Avoid duplication of work through an optimised patent application
  • Best practices for drafting an optimised EP and US Patent Application

Aims and objectives

Those seeking to have a patent granted by the EPO and USPTO for the same invention face the challenge of satisfying different requirements for the two jurisdictions. For example, a claim granted by the EPO may have a different scope than one granted by the USPTO. Moreover claim amendments permissible at the EPO might be impermissible at the USPTO and vice versa.

You will save time and money by optimising your patent applications for both offices. By keeping in mind major differences, you can avoid duplicating work and achieve better results. Using concrete examples, our speakers will develop with you guidelines for preparing a patent application optimised for undergoing parallel procedures at the EPO and USPTO.

Who should attend
Do you work in a corporate patent/IP department or as a patent attorney in private practice and do you deal regularly with patent prosecutions before EPO and USPTO?

Then this course is designed for you. Knowledge on patents is assumed.
