Co-chair, Leslie Fischer (Principal Patent Attorney, Novartis) shared why she believes this conference is a must-attend:

“ACI’s Life Sciences Patent conference is absolutely my go-to conference every year – one I simply do not miss. The panels are excellent and always on point, with timely topics and engaging speakers. And, although held in NYC, this conference provides global patent insights.

We’ve had speakers from all over the world, talking about issues as diverse as Brexit and the Unified Patent Court, sufficiency issues for antibodies in Japan, patent extensions in Canada, and double patenting in the U.S. If you only go to one patent event for life sciences in 2020, this should be it.”
