Best Practices for Avoiding Patent Prosecution Malpractice

Malpractice concerns for patent practitioners are on the rise. As patents become more valuable and the intricacies of patent practice only continue to grow, the opportunity for mistakes with severe consequences are escalating. There is no substitute for being prepared, highly organized and having systems and policies in place to deal with a malpractice event

Multiple redundancies in your docketing function are required by insurance companies for a reason – docketing errors can and do lead to loss of rights and big problems. So too can a lack of internal structure and formalized policies for attorneys and staff to follow.

Join Gene Quinn, Founder and President of IPWatchdog.com, on Thursday, October 18, 2018, at 12pm EDT, for a free webinar with wide-ranging conversation about modern malpractice realities that arise from routine occurrences, but which can and do cause very real problems for a practice that demands adherence to tight timelines. Joining Gene will be Jim Carmichael, Former Administrative Patent Judge and Patent Attorney for Carmichael IP and Kelly McNulty, Director of IP Admin Services Clarivate Analytics (Derwent).

Patent Drafting Best Practices: Latest Trends and Real World Realities

The patent specification has always been a critical part of the patent application, but the specification has become increasingly important in recent years. With the Federal Circuit looking to the specification hunting for an innovative concept and for explanation about how the claimed invention is an improvement over the prior art, the written disclosures must be more robust to withstand increased scrutiny. Of course, there are pitfalls to avoid. But gone are the days of cheap patents with thin disclosures. They simply cannot stand challenge.

In addition to taking as many questions as possible from the audience we will discuss:

  • Identifying the invention/improvement versus KSR 103 concerns.
  • Best practices for ensuring a complete and thorough specification.
  • 112 matters and common examiner rejections.
  • The trend toward flat fee billing: accomplishing it all on a client budget.

Join Gene Quinn, President and Founder of IPWatchdog.com, on Monday, October 22, 2018, at 2 pm EDT, for a free webinar discussion.  Joining Gene Quinn will be Salvador Bezos, Director with Sterne Kessler and Jennifer Bailey, Partner for Erise IP.

Preparing for Competitive IP Assertion and Litigation Threats

Patent enforcement campaigns led by patent trolls, non-practicing entities and patent assertion entities have been the focus of most in the intellectual property world for the majority of the past decade.

Increasingly, however, we are seeing large entities in immature markets resorting to competitive IP assertion. Apple v. Samsung and Waymo v. Uber are high profile examples of large entity competitors fighting over intellectual property. More recently, Facebook has turned to a patent enforcement campaign in federal district court to stop alleged infringement by BlackBerry.

Over the years Whirlpool Corporation has not been afraid to enforce its considerable patent and trademark portfolios against competitors of all sizes. And there are always ongoing examples of smaller competitors fighting patent battles.
