Patent prosecution can turn very bad. Repeated rejection/response cycles can burn years of time and tens of thousands of dollars, providing little tangible result beyond busted budgets and frustrated clients.
However, by leveraging the treasure trove of data in publicly accessible file wrappers you can take control over even the most difficult cases.
In this webinar Julie McConihay and William Morriss, both seasoned patent prosecutors, shared their experience and techniques for using file wrapper analysis to stop prosecution from going bad and limiting the damage if it does.
This will be of interest to anyone prosecuting difficult applications, as well as by people who manage that prosecution and need to do so in a way that makes effective use of their limited resources.
You'll come away with insights for how to leverage the collective experience of the entire patent bar to intelligently and efficiently get the best results for your clients.
Specific topics covered in this session:
Make your prosecution processes intelligent and efficient.
