    How to Ensure Sufficiency of Disclosure in EPO Patent Applications

    Management Forum

    London

    This seminar will highlight the issues which must be taken into account to avoid an objection under Art 83 t any time during prosecution of the application, or the life of the patent.

    What good is it to have developed an invention with the potential to be a technical and commercial success, if the application for the patent is refused, or the corresponding patent revoked, just because some essential features have been forgotten? By the end of the seminar participants will understand the pitfalls with respect to insufficiency, and will be able to avoid them when drafting their applications.

    Contrary to widespread belief, Art 83EPC is not a topic which is only in chemistry and biotechnology.  All technical areas encounter problems of insufficiency, and it is best to be aware of the problem.  The notion of essential features under Art 83 EPC will be amply illustrated.

    WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM ATTENDING

    • Trainee patent attorneys
    • Patent attorneys in private practice
    • Corporate patent attorneys and lawyers
    • US Patent Attorneys working in Europe
    • Consultants and managers
