For those who attended, thank you for an incredible event. We are looking forward to returning in May 2024.

  • Establishing sound and successful protocols to procure and enforce life sciences patents in the U.S. and internationally
  • Developing new standards of drafting successful genus claims in anticipation of the U.S. Supreme Court review of enablement in Amgen v. Sanofi
  • Evaluating the “pros and cons” of opting-into the EU’s new Unitary Patent system and the Unified Patent Court for your global pharmaceutical patent portfolio
  • Bullet-proofing your patent portfolio against skinny labelling claims and safe harbor exemptions
  • Obtaining and enforcing patent rights for novel therapeutics and gene therapies
