Practical Tips for Increasing Patent Allowance Rates (Replay)

October 3, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


If you were unable to join us in person at IPWatchdog Studios for Patent Prosecution & Portfolio Management Masters™ 2023, a part of the IPWatchdog Masters™ series, register now to watch the broadcast of the Practical Tips for Increasing Patent Allowance Rates panel (about 12:45 PM ET). This panel will be preceded by Gene Quinn‘s conversation with James Hallenbeck, President & CEO of Black Hills IP, about artificial intelligence, patent drafting, staffing, and patent practice management (12:00 PM ET).  Both were recorded on June 20, 2023.

This panel will undertake a wide-ranging discussion on examiner statistics, pressures, and expectations, as well as discuss the micro vs. macro strategy relating to whether you are trying to increase allowance on a particular application or for an entire portfolio. The specific topics the panel will discuss include:

(1) Deciphering examiner statistics for insights on tendencies.

(2) Understanding examiner time limitations and what practitioners can do to help streamline an application (i.e., 112 issues, translations, drafting differently in anticipation of 101).

(3) The importance of keeping original claim sets reasonable (i.e., narrow isn’t bad if it is part of a comprehensive strategy).

(4) The importance of properly interviewing examiners (and without fishing expeditions).

(5) The variety of procedural tools and filings that can and do raise allowance rates (i.e., PPH, Track One, etc.)
