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.
