PLI’s Fundamentals of Patent Prosecution 2012: A Boot Camp for Claim Drafting & Amendment Writing
May 16 – 18, 2012

Chicago, IL

PLI’s Fundamentals of Patent Prosecution 2012: A Boot Camp for Claim Drafting & Amendment Writing program is directed to patent attorneys, litigation attorneys and patent agents with or without a Patent Office registration number, or little patent experience. It will focus on the basics of claim drafting, patent application preparation and prosecution, as well as a review of recent developments in the law. A litigator’s perspective is also presented to show how drafting and prosecution can influence the development, and often the outcome, of subsequent patent litigation. The clinics offer a unique supplement to the kind of hands-on mentoring that senior attorneys are hard-pressed to provide to less-experienced attorneys and agents.

Topics to be covered:

  • How to decide what elements of the invention should be included in the patent
  • How to prosecute an application to result in allowance of an enforceable patent
  • How to interview an Examiner
  • How to use reissues, reexaminations and other post-issuance proceedings
  • How to anticipate patent litigation issues during the patent prosecution process

Speaker: Michael A. Molano – “Litigation Issues”
