Prepare for the new post-grant system

Presented by

Managing IP in association with Morrison & Foerster

About this talk

At the end of June, the US House of Representatives passed a patent reform bill six years in the making, joining the Senate in passing legislation shifting the US to a first-to-file system and significantly expanding the options available for challenging a patent after it has been granted. While the House bill must still be voted on by the Senate and signed into law by the president, patent practitioners and companies must begin preparing for the changes now. This webinar will examine the new post-grant system, including the elimination of inter partes reexamination, establishment of post-grant review proceedings, special transitional post-grant review of business method patents and supplemental examination. Speakers: Eileen McDermott, Americas editor, Managing IP (moderator) Laura Johnson, vice president of intellectual property, DexCom, Inc. Peng Chen, partner, San Diego, Morrison & Foerster Mehran Arjomand, partner, LA, Morrison & Foerster

‘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
