European Patent Office amendment practice is frequent cause of frustration when dealing with patent applications in Europe. Adding to the difficulty in getting amendments allowed, there is also the risk of amendments being subsequently declared impermissible in opposition or revocation proceedings, which may jeopardize your entire patent.
Sofia Willquist and Ole Bokinge will be here to provide practically oriented guidance towards understanding EPO amendment practice. They are skilled patent practitioners from the Linköping, Sweden offices of Awapatent. TIPLA has applied for 1 hour of NC general CLE credit for this event. Lunch will be provided.
