In today’s environment, obtaining patents in foreign countries is vital to the protection of business interests. However, despite many efforts toward harmonization of international procedures and practice, many differences remain.  These differences can introduce additional delays and expenses into the international patenting process and, in some cases, can result in obtaining less than optimal patent protection.  During this session, experts will discuss these differences and explain strategies for obtaining overseas patents in the most efficient and effective way possible.

-Strategies and tips for effective patent protection from different national perspectives
-Different approaches to functional claiming
-Procedural tools to accelerate prosecution and save cost
-Best practices for drafting a patent application that meet different national requirements
