Strategies for Maximizing Patent Term

Time: 1pm ET

Innovators understand that patents are important tools to maintain a competitive advantage and extend their products’ life cycles.  However, that competitive advantage ends when patents covering a successful product expire.  Maximizing the time of patent coverage is therefore an important part of leveraging patents.  Patent in the United States have a standard 20-year term from their filing date.  But various mechanisms to extend term beyond the 20-year standard are often available, and can significantly increase the exclusivity period, and value, of a protected product.

      In this webinar, we will:

      • Look at options available for extending the standard 20-year patent term, including patent term adjustment and extensions for regulatory delays.
      • Recommend tips to follow, as well as pitfalls to avoid, to help maximize extensions under these different options.
      • Look at strategies for filing and prosecuting patent applications.
      • Provide best practices to maximize the term of patent coverage for products.
      • Discuss strategies that unnecessarily risk decreasing patent term and are best avoided.
