Our panel will guide you through best practices for preparation and use of these important legal tools, including how to use them in portfolio management to control escalating costs of patent protection, and how to draft them to maximize value. The panel will also explore whether and what changes to these tools are necessitated by the new first to file system and derivation proceedings implemented by the America Invents Act.
WMACCA will apply for 1.5 hours of Virginia MCLE credit.
