Differences in practice between EPO and US in how to draft patent applications
New seminars related to US patent practice in January 2020
How can you reconcile the different requirements when drafting for the EPO and the USPTO?
On January 16 2020 we are going to host two half day seminars related to US patent practice. The first one is related to the differences between the EPO and the USPTO in the requirements and best practice for patent applications. You can choose to attend just one of them or both, at a better price. US Patent Attorney Gabriela Tomescu from Bergenstråhle & Partners and European Patent Attorney Rut Herbjörnsen will be lecturing.

There are important differences between the EPO and the USPTO in what is expected and recommended for patent applications. At the same time, we often draft applications that should work for both of them.
This seminar discusses what is considered best practice in both jurisdictions and suggests how to deal with the different requirements in cost-efficient ways.
