Patent portfolio management starts at the inventive stage and doesn’t end until a patent is no longer active.  Strategies vary widely and goals may evolve over time.  Future events, such as those relating to licensing and litigation, can greatly affect such strategies.  As patent portfolios grow, management becomes more difficult as does ensuring that the efforts (and expenditures) being made are appropriate.  This webinar provides a variety of perspectives that will be useful in ensuring that your patent portfolio is robust, purposeful and managed effectively.

Patent prosecution can be managed and carried out using a variety of approaches.  Some in-house counsel prefer to be highly involved, while others are more apt to let outside counsel run with things.  Attorneys (or patent agents) doing the work of response drafting, brief drafting, carrying out interviews and other tasks employ many different approaches and strategies.  This webinar provides insight as to how to efficiently manage outside counsel while ensuring quality.

Managing the patent drafting process requires interaction amongst many parties, at the least including an inventor, outside counsel and in-house counsel or other management. This may expand to include multiple inventors, licensing and/or marketing input and different levels of management, both in-house and in an outside firm. Managing this group to achieve a high quality patent application that is accurate from the standpoint of the inventor(s) and related technologies, cognizant of current law and ongoing changes,
relevant to a business purpose and efficient with respect to the inventor’s time, all while enabling outside counsel to remain profitable, can be challenging. This webinar provides insight into these aspects, with experienced panelists on both sides of the fence.
