Are you interested in staying current on patent prosecution practice or involved in cross-disciplinary practice? Are you a new or junior lawyer, a patent agent, or a technical advisor? Are you an international practitioner who wants to understand and speak the language of the USPTO and US practitioners when sending instructions on a US case or when receiving instructions on a local case?
If your answer is “yes” to any of the above questions, or if you simply want to learn more about patent law, please join us at the Rocky Mountain Regional Office of the USPTO for this three-day patent prosecution seminar. This year marks the program’s 19th year and is a comprehensive, CLE-accredited seminar that includes instructional lecture-style sessions with practical tips on U.S. and international patent preparation and prosecution and hands-on interactive workshops on claim drafting and responding to office actions.
To ensure that the workshops are relevant to your practice, they are held in smaller groups according to technology backgrounds: (1) Biotechnology/Chemical, (2) Electrical/Software, and (3) Mechanical.
Day 1 focuses on preparation of a patent application.
Day 2 focuses on prosecution of the application to grant.
Day 3 is dedicated to more advanced topics and covers petitions, appeals, post-grant proceedings, and international practice.

Shareholder LaVar Oldham will give a presentation on “Filing Formalities” on Wednesday, February 7 from 11:35 am – 12:05 pm. For more information or to register to attend, click here.
