EPO Case Law Seminar
14 October 2014
Managing Partner Colin Baker and medtech specialist Gareth Probert attended the 4th Annual Case Law Conference at the European Patent Office in The Hague on behalf of Potter Clarkson. This year's event was even larger than before, with around 300 IP professionals, patent examiners and judges travelling from across Europe, China, Mexico, the US and other countries to the EPO.
As well as discussing trends in the recent decisions of the Boards of Appeal, it gave Colin and Gareth opportunities to gain valuable insights into the "behind the scenes" workings of the Boards of Appeal. Between the presentations in the central auditorium, it was good to chat to many of the firm's clients attending the seminar.
