Working Smarter with Patent Counsel: Tips for Inventors and In-House Lawyers

An efficient, productive first meeting with patent counsel can go a long way toward ensuring the patent application process goes smoothly and successfully. Inventors and corporate counsel alike can benefit from learning key considerations to discuss with their patent attorney initially and at each stage of the process. This webinar will offer guidance on what crucial information should be provided at the onset and what further developments should be shared down the line:

  • Pre-Drafting Stage
    • Inventorship
    • Information needed for written description
    • Public disclosure (IDS; bar dates)
  • Drafting Stage
    • Legal requirements of a patent application
    • Sections 112, 101, 102, and 103
    • Specifications, claims, drawings
  • Post-Filing Stage
    • Post-filing improvements or prototypes
    • Commercialization plans and efforts
  • Business Drivers
    • Target market analysis
    • Marketing advantages of invention features
    • Critical timeline markers

Our speaker will be Fitch Even attorney Jennifer V. Suarez. Jennifer focuses her practice on U.S. and international patent preparation and prosecution, assisting clients in the electronics, mechanical, telecommunications, computer technology, and medical arts in the development and protection of their IP rights.
