Part of Volpe Koenig's CLE Webinar Series, this program was recorded on June 10 2021
When developing and managing patent portfolios, one of the most overlooked cost-savings areas is training your inventors to effectively communicate with outside counsel and efficiently contribute to the prosecution strategy. Providing a higher quality work product to outside counsel often translates to substantial economies in prosecuting patent applications. This webinar provides in-house IP counsel with essential tools on how to educate inventors, along with materials and examples to use in your own training programs.
Counsel will gain an appreciation of the patent prosecution process as seen from the unique perspectives of the inventor, inside counsel and outside counsel. Understanding how the timing, decision and interaction points integrate to form a cohesive IP strategy will ultimately save time and costs.
Session participants will receive training materials to educate inventors on:
- The Patent Prosecution Process
- Privilege and Confidentiality
- Duty of Disclosure
- Online Resources
- Novelty and Non-Obviousness
- And more!
