Rory P. Pheiffer to Moderate Panel on Fast Tracking Patent Applications at the USPTO at the 2019 AUTM Annual MeetingPrint PDF
Rory P. Pheiffer, a partner and the deputy chair of Nutter’s Intellectual Property Department, will moderate the “Fast Tracking Success at the USPTO (and Abroad)” panel at the 2019 AUTM Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. The panel will examine how technologies benefit from the ability to fast-track their patent applications through the U.S. Patent Office and Trademark Office (USPTO) and abroad, if appropriate. An issued patent can lead to more licensing and investment opportunities, thus creating an incentive to get a patent issued quickly. However, achieving a faster patent does not necessarily mean the resulting patent will be narrower and less valuable. It also does not mean it will be more expensive. To the contrary, there are a variety of strategies that can be employed to create strong patents quickly and in a cost-effective manner. This session will also explore effective patent prosecution strategies.
