Patent Prosecution Strategies for Building a Strong Patent Portfolio

April 12, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


Creating a patent prosecution strategy to address the good, bad and ugly seen by patent litigators and monetization experts.

Patents have been and continue to be an important asset for all innovators. Unfortunately, however, a patent is not an asset that typically possesses flexibility and adaptability.

Even after the original disclosure is filed a number of strategic choices remain available throughout the lifecycle of patent prosecution in order organically building a formidable patent portfolio from the ground up. Of course, there are landmines and pitfalls along the way that can significantly undercut any particular patent, as well as an entire patent family.

Join Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com, for a free webinar discussion about patent prosecution strategies. This webinar will take a look at patent strength and value from three different perspectives; namely the perspective of a patent litigator, the perspective of a monetization expert, and the perspective of a patent prosecutor.

Joining Gene will be Bob Stoll, former Commissioner for Patents at the USPTO and current partner at Drinker Biddle, Meredith Addy, a patent litigator and appellate attorney with Tabet DiVito & Rothstein, and Mike McLean, senior Vice President of IP services at TechInsights.

This webinar will address:

  1. The good, bad and ugly of patent prosecution as seen by patent litigators with respect to the patents they litigate.
  2. The good, bad and ugly of patent prosecution with respect to patent licensing, patent portfolio management, and IP monetization.
  3. Patent prosecution strategies to address the good, bad and ugly.
  4. Drafting patent claims with assertion in mind, as well as the potential problems associated with seeking overly broad claims.
  5. Comparing and contrasting best practices for breakthrough innovations versus incremental improvements.
  6. To appeal or not to appeal: The risk/reward of have the PTAB weigh on an ex parte appeal during prosecution.
