23 February 2022 - The Innovative Paralegal: Demystifying the complex European patent system

What are the measures of success that will make today’s patent paralegals ready for tomorrow?

Demystifying the complex European patent system, branding themselves as go-to resources, and smoothly managing the issues and myriad queries in the process are just starters.

We’re here to help
Kilburn & Strode and the graduates of our Paralegal Academy are proud to host the virtual training event The Innovative Paralegal. We hope you will invite anyone on your team who will find this a useful session. 

Aimed at paralegals and patent administrators who are unfamiliar with EPO procedures or want to sharpen their knowledge, we’ll talk through the initial differences between direct European Patent applications and Euro-PCT applications after filing. Our experts will cover tips and tricks to help make the process as efficient and successful as possible. Specifically, we’ll discuss:

  • Formal requirements for filing at the EPO: Direct and Euro-PCT Filings

  • Instructing the filing of a European application: Best practice when instructing your European attorneys

  • Claiming priority at the EPO: Rules, time limits, and how to avoid common pitfalls

  • Answers to common questions about EPO deadlines: What is the 10-day notification period? How does further processing work? Which responses can I request time extensions on?

We hope paralegals on your team can join us. Please do extend the invite!
