The law and interpretation of patent claims varies widely in different jurisdictions. Therefore, understanding how patent
claims are interpreted in different regions is essential when trying to prove patent infringement and validity in order to protect an organisation’s primary assets. This course has been specifically designed for all patent professionals doing business in a complex multi-jurisdictional environment.
The programme, presented by our expert speaker faculty, will include fact-based scenarios and case examples, with comparisons of the USA, UK and German approaches to claim construction and validity determination. The speakers will provide recommendations for both litigating patents and preparing patent applications to the best advantage.
Attending this course will provide the perfect opportunity for interaction with experts, as well as other like-minded participants. It will also provide the perfect forum for discussing any issues of particular concern in relation to patent construction.
