Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Pitfalls in Post-Grant Trials

Managing IP’s next webinar, run in cooperation with Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP, will take place on May 12 at 4pm (eastern standard time); 1pm (pacific standard time) and will discuss ‘Pitfalls in Post-Grant Trials’.

The popularity of USPTO post-grant patent trials have only increased. Whether the PTAB institutes an inter partes review, a post-grant review, or a post-grant validity review of qualified business method patents, each trial has procedural pitfalls with considerable strategic considerations during the Second Phase of the trial (from the institution decision to the final written decision by the Board). This webinar will explore the most common mistakes the third party petitioner or patent owner during the 2nd Phase, with an explanation of key decisions by the PTAB (including those posted on the USPTO microsite) as well as the Federal Circuit. The focus will be on discovery, the patent owner motion to amend, oral hearing, and estoppel.

Speakers include:
•Michael Loney, Americas editor, Managing IP (moderator)
•Eugene Perez, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP
•Gerald Murphy, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP

With post-grant trials becoming increasingly popular, having an in-depths understanding of the pitfalls and challenges is essential for sustaining a strong presence in the market place. The live audience will be able to ask questions of the speakers during the webinar, which will be in English and will last one hour.

This webinar relates to our April 16 discussion focusing on ‘Pitfalls in the first phase of Post Grant Proceedings’. You can listen to it here: https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/327/149005

  • Enhancing your assertiveness for greater self confidence Recorded: Jun 18 2020 35 mins
    Alicia Sutton
    Join executive coach Alicia Sutton for this 30 minute webinar.
    Do you often find yourself wondering whether or not you’ve demonstrated the right level of assertiveness? This uncertainty can impact our effectiveness and self-confidence. With the increase of virtual working, it can be even more challenging to gauge how well you’re representing yourself in conversations with colleagues and clients. This engaging and interactive session will support you in having clarity on how to stand up for yourself, whilst also creating warmth and connection in your relationships.
  • Raising your visibility (part 2) Recorded: Jun 11 2020 35 mins
    Julie Smith, executive coach
    In Part 1 we covered - How to Identify your Personal Brand.

    That’s a great first step but your personal brand is no use if only you know about it! You need to take proactive steps to raise your visibility. This 30 minute seminar will provide tried and tested tips on how to do this.

    I’m not about to suggest you all start speaking at international conferences if that’s not your thing. There are introverted and extraverted ways to do this. Yes, stretch outside your comfort zone but I’m not asking you to terrify yourself.
    It’s about finding natural ways to share with people:
    •what you do,
    •what they can expect from you,
    •how they will benefit from having a working relationship with you,
    •your interests and where you want to go in the future.
  • Trade and commerce in West Africa and how it influences IP rights Recorded: Jun 9 2020 83 mins
    Ngozi Aderibigbe, Oloruntobi Opawoye and Joy Azumara from Jackson, Etti and Edu
    The western part of Africa is known for its vast population, cultural diversity and illustrious commercial activities that traverse the several countries that make up the sub-region. With trade and commerce deeply and historically embedded in the lifestyle and cultures of the people, it is no wonder that the use and protection of intellectual property rights is a significant concern – as well as a treasure trove of opportunities.

    Together, the trio of IP experts from Jackson Etti and Edu dissect the underlining issues surrounding trade and commerce cultures in West Africa and further advise on the best strategies to protect IP rights in this region. In this webinar, we will discuss cultural patterns such as the appetite for foreign goods, the relatively open borders and free trade system being operated in the region, the national and regional IP filing systems and how all of these come together to paint an interesting picture in the IP space. Join us on the 9th of June as we uncover the treasures of West Africa.
  • How to Identify your Personal Brand (part one) Recorded: Jun 3 2020 42 mins
    Julie Smith, executive coach
    What type of person do you imagine saying ‘I’m currently working on my personal brand?' For many people, it’s an unflattering image that comes to mind, usually of someone similar to the most annoying contestants on The Apprentice.

    I’m with you on this, such people have me ready to run in the opposite direction. The thing is, you have a personal brand whether you realise it or not. People are making judgments about you all the time based on your: work, behaviours, communication style, appearance etc. It matters because it’s a key factor in:
    •whether opportunities and clients come your way,
    •whether people want to help you on projects and
    •whether people buy into what you are trying to achieve.

    So, identifying your brand and raising its visibility, are vital.

    This 30 minute webinar will explore the first step in this journey – How to Identify your Personal Brand.

    For step two, join Part 2: Raising your visibility, next week.

  • Leadership for Lawyers: how to stay visible and show up as a leader Recorded: May 13 2020 43 mins
    Claudia Danser, leadership and career coach
    Finding the time to lead - and knowing how to do it well - can be difficult at the best of times. It can be challenging to figure out how to balance doing your own legal work with the responsibility of managing and motivating your teams and colleagues.

    During a crisis, when working lives and social interactions are disrupted, it can feel overwhelming and almost impossible to do effectively, remotely. Yet our personal experience and studies show that now, more than ever, is when we all want and need great leadership. It’s become essential. What can you do to improve how you show up as a leader for others while you’re in lockdown?

    This 45 minute session will give you immediate practical takeaways based on the latest leadership research. It will help you not only focus on what’s important during COVID-19 but also give you the tools to enable you, your colleagues and your business to come out better and stronger on the other side.

    Tracy-Gene G. Durkin and Gaby L. Longsworth, Ph.D from Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox

    The speakers will discuss various ways to make contacts and build networks to reach potential clients, including how this can be done during these difficult times. Calling on their own personal experiences, they will discuss what worked and what they wished they had done differently, particularly early in their careers. They will also talk about how to focus on and win the business you want, and equally important, how to keep it once you have it.
  • Search Engines can do more to protect your intellectual property Recorded: Jul 16 2019 58 mins
    Simon Baggs (Incopro), Dan Glover (McCarthy Tetrault), Helen Saunders (Incopro). Moderator Sanjana Kapila (Managing IP)
    Millions of locations online are dedicated to infringing intellectual property, including by offering copyright content without any licence and selling counterfeit products. It doesn’t stop there. Infringers will fake accounts to harvest data, run operations to trap people into paying for services that they never receive and give access to products that are illegal and often dangerous.

    All responsible Internet operators can play their part in stopping this proliferation of unlawful activity online. Hosts of websites act to take down an illegal website when notified. Social media platforms remove harmful posts when notified.

    But search engines will do very little, if anything. Indexing the world’s information has gone too far.

    So, what can be done to redress the balance?

    Join us as we analyse:
    • What is happening online, with practical case study examples on issues affecting the pharma, sports, consumer product, motoring and electrical sectors
    • The case law that shows how search engines can be required to do more
    • What next steps brands can take to get more cooperation from search engines

    On June 13, 2016, the United States Supreme Court decided that the two-part Seagate test being used to decide whether or not an infringer is subject to enhanced damages was inconsistent with the statutory authority (35 U.S.C. §284) relied on for those claims.
