Data has to be the starting point for any patent prosecution strategy, but cooperatively working with an examiner streamlines the process.
Join Gene Quinn patent attorney and publisher of IPWatchdog, and Lauren Anderson, a patent attorney with Womble Carlyle, for a wide-ranging discussion on examiner statistics, pressures, expectations and how best to streamline the patent process to increase allowance rates.
In this webinar we covered:
- Deciphering examiner statistics for insights on tendencies.
- Understanding examiner time limitations and what practitioners can do to help streamline an application (i.e., 112 issues, translations).
- The importance of keeping original claim sets reasonable.
- The importance of interviewing without fishing expeditions.
