Panel Topics Following the Judges Roundtable, we will have a series of in-house counsel panels led by principals from Fish & Richardson’s life sciences practice.

Personalized Medicine
Panelists will discuss how typical personalized medicine claims are particularly vulnerable to attack on grounds of inherent anticipation, lack of patent-eligible subject matter, and joint infringement – and will share strategies on how to craft claims to avoid these issues. In addition, panelists will discuss the role that personalized medicine patents play in the review and approval of generic medicines.

What’s Hot in Pharmaceutical Trademarks
This presentation will provide attendees an overview of the top 10 issues and trends that every life sciences company should know about in the area of trademark law and will share best practices for selecting strong marks.

Pharmaceutical Litigation/Hatch-Waxman
Experienced litigators will explore emerging trends in the ever-growing field of pharmaceutical patent litigation. In this session, attendees will gain valuable insight on how to best position themselves for success.
