Strategies for European patents, prosecution and enforcement

Presented by

Managing IP, Lexis Nexis

About this talk

This web seminar will look at issues of patent prosecution, enforcement, litigation and invalidation in Europe at the moment. While there continues to be variation between jurisdictions, the prospect of a unified European patent and new rules from the EPO are also changing how potential filers look at Europe as a whole. Topics to be covered include: • How to get the best out of the European patchwork • Cost-saving strategies • Efficient patent enforcement • Exploiting the differences between patent jurisdictions • Groundbreaking decisions at the Board of Appeal and EPO • The second force: The Court of Justice • Differences and similarities with the US Speakers: Simon Crompton, Managing IP (moderator) Uli Storz, Michalski Huettermann & Partner Thilo Schmelcher, Michalski Huettermann & Partner Eric Notegen, Hoffmann-La Roche

‘What keeps in-house counsel awake at night?’ is one way to summarise our editorial focus. We aim to track the strategies of in-house IP counsel within companies, big and small, by speaking directly to them about the day-to-day issues they face. Law firms need practical information that they can apply when advising their clients, and companies find value in benchmarking their strategies with those of their peers. This is why we have adopted this approach in our subscription-based service. Our content is not reactionary or news-focused, but informed and actionable. In this pursuit of in-house intelligence, we also publish several surveys each year that include exclusive data focusing on specific industry issues. These polls allow us to provide an accurate snapshot of how in-house counsel perceive and act on a given issue. Our other core objective is interviewing senior judges, whose insight is valuable for many IP stakeholders. We find that the judiciary are vital for giving counsel, private and in-house, highly useful information for when they are locked in litigation. We continue to speak regularly with IP offices too. Regardless of its specific intent, our coverage is global and encompasses (but is not limited to) the following areas: Copyright; Data; Designs; Patents; Trademarks; and Trade secrets
