2022 Michigan Medical Device Summit - Breakout 4
Strategies on Building a Strong MedTech IP Portfolio
Hear from seasoned intellectual property (IP) practitioners as they discuss best practices for building effective and practical portfolios, both at home and abroad. Topics focusing on the domestic portfolio include timing and scope of provisional patent applications, the importance of those first 12 months, and using US continuation practice to gain a competitive edge.
Then the conversation shifts to protecting IP in other countries with topics addressing what to file, where to file and how to file in order to achieve the right balance in your company’s international IP portfolio.
