Patent law continues to be a dynamic area of intellectual law practice as it is, by nature, tied to the rapid pace of innovation in a variety of industries. Whether the industry is software and technology, pharmaceuticals or engineering, the patent system plays a significant role in the creation and leveraging of these innovations. Understanding Patent Law will guide attendees that are new to the practice through a complete survey of patent law and some of its core issues. The program starts with a review of what patents cover and the rights accorded to a patent holder. Building on that, the agenda will review the patent application process, patent prosecution, navigating proceedings before the Patent Trademark Office, followed by business transactions involving patents, including licensing and M&A deals. Goodwin's Keith Zullow will be chairing and speaking at this conference. Goodwin's Sarah Solomon will be speaking as well.
