The medical device market is evolving very rapidly, however recent court decisions and their application to real-life situations have made it more difficult to attain patent protection in the necessary technologies. As such, inventors have to think ahead in their patent planning and consider alternative paths and strategies to protect their portfolios.
Join us at American Conference Institute’s annual Advanced Summit on Medical Device Patents and hear from our esteemed faculty as they provide analysis and insider viewpoints on the hottest, most pressing medical-device topics. This year’s speaking faculty is comprised of seniorlevel executives from top pharmaceutical companies, leading outside counsel, members of the judiciary and representatives from the PTO.
Fresh for this year, we have added several panels which will discuss: impacts of the new administration on patent reform and the development of medical device inventions, the impact of Halo and the new willfulness standard, and a post-conference workshop on the offensive and defensive use of the inter partes review process.
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to hear from our stellar faculty as they share their knowledge and best practices for success in the prosecution and litigation of medical device patents.
