American Conference Institute’s 6th National Forum on
Freedom to Operate
Monday, July 30 to Tuesday, July 31, 2012
The Union League, Philadelphia, PA
Can Your Company Afford to Make the Wrong Freedom to Operate Determination?
Freedom to operate searching and analysis, always a critical component of any patent counsel’s profession, is undergoing its biggest shake-up in a generation. Expansion of the obviousness standard, the America Invents Act provisions now requiring a truly global search, and other developments have left patent attorneys and business development professionals perplexed as they try to protect valuable IP in an increasingly competitive global environment. As a result, it is vital that you have the “know-how” to make early, sound, and competent business determinations as to whether you truly have freedom to operate in a given area.
There is one place you can equip yourself with the tools needed to overcome these uncertainties – American Conference Institute’s 6th Tactical and Practical Guide to Freedom to Operate. This exclusive event will bring you targeted, thoughtful commentary on the mechanics of making sound and competent freedom to operate determinations. ACI has gathered an outstanding faculty of leading in-house counsel and expert attorneys from the biotech, pharmaceutical, and chemical sectors who will provide you with first-hand, practical, and comprehensive best practices on freedom to operate search and analysis. This event will provide attendees with:
• Access to the thought processes and best practices of in-house counsel and executives from biotech, pharmaceutical, and chemical sectors
Further enhance your learning by attending the post-conference Master Class on Creating and Implementing an Iterative “Living” FTO Strategy: Utilizing FTO to Inform Product Development and Minimize IP Risks and the Complete Guide to Maintaining Market Exclusivity for Diagnostic Methods Post-Prometheus.
