Advanced Patent Prosecution Workshop 2017

PLI’s Advanced Patent Prosecution Workshop

Blank Rome Partner Jay P. Lessler will co-chair and participate in the Practicing Law Institute ("PLI") program, "Advanced Patent Prosecution Workshop 2017: Claim Drafting & Amendment Writing," held July 25-26, in the PLI New York Conference Center. 

This advanced program is designed for private or corporate and other in-house practitioners with patent experience who wish to improve their general claim drafting and amendment writing skills. Attendees will have the opportunity to concentrate for two days on the specialized skills required in their technological area by receiving individualized feedback and guidance from experienced patent prosecutors. Discussions will include practical techniques for avoiding prosecution pitfalls and working with the USPTO in general and specifically with respect to section 101 issues to get your client’s patent applications allowed. In addition, counsel will be provided on the America Invents Act implementation by the Patent and Trademark Office, including the new Post-Grant Review and Inter Partes Review, as well as Covered Business Method Patents. Furthermore, the practical impact of significant Supreme Court and Federal Circuit decisions, e.g., MyriadMayoAlice, and KSR, will be explained.

Mr. Lessler has been crucial to planning this year's workshop. He will provide the program's opening remarks and program overview.
