This webinar, with guest speakers Tom Mitcheson QC from 3 New Square and Dr Lawrence Cullen from the UK Intellectual Property Office, and hosted by Kristina Cornish and Nicole Jadeja, will highlight the latest SPC news from the perspectives of prosecution, enforcement and policy. We will:
Consider the current trends in the prosecution of SPCs, as well as portfolio management to maximise patent term extension
Debate the implications of recent case law on obtaining and enforcing SPCs, the direction of travel in the courts, what the future might hold for particular types of claims and where future battle grounds lie
Hear the latest from the UK IPO
This webinar will have something practical to offer everyone involved in the world of SPCs, including those who live and breathe SPCs as well as those looking to file SPCs for the first time.
