  • Final Orders and Settlements resulting from disciplinary proceedings brought by the OED, and specifically address the joint Federal Trade Commission and USPTO investigation into World Patent Marketing, which resulted in the FTC taking action in federal district court as well was OED taking disciplinary action against a number of practitioners involved in what the FTC described as a scheme to bilk inventors of millions of dollars.

This CLE has been approved for 1 hour of ethics credit in Virginia. As an approved CLE jurisdiction, attorneys in many states can claim CLE credit approved in Virginia, including attorneys in: AK, AR, AZ, CA, CO, FL, HI, ME, NC NJ, NY, OH and others.

Patent Prosecution Sourcing Models: Best Practices in driving quality patents on strategy and budget

Maintaining patent quality is more important than ever, as the Federal Circuit continues to expect greater detail in patent applications and care to ensure the heart of the invention is represented in the claims.

Rising costs to maintain patents worldwide continue to force law firms and corporations to seek sources and methods of keeping costs down without allowing quality to suffer.

Sometimes it makes sense to outsource certain work to outside firms that can provide more competitive pricing while insourcing other work of greater strategic importance and value. Navigating these waters is not easy but assigning team members based on the value of the contribution that can be made to the project saves money without affecting quality.

Join Gene Quinn, President, and CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc, on TUESDAY, July 16, 2019, at 12pm (noon) EDT for a conversation of the various patent prosecution sourcing models available today, their strengths and weaknesses, and how a thoughtful, coordinated approach to preparation and prosecution of patent applications can stretch budgets without reducing quality.  Joining Gene will be Donato Pasquariello, Senior Patent Attorney for Ericsson, Jeff Waters, Partner with Cantor Colburn, Brad Lawrence, Partner with Canto Colburn and Richard Kolar, Head of Services for Derwent, a Clarivate Analytics company
