An introduction to IP – Getting patents granted around the world

22nd January 2021, 9:00 am

Following last week’s webinar on the basics of the patent system, the second installation in our “Introduction to IP” webinar series will cover filing priority applications, inventors and owners, the international (PCT) patent application process and filing foreign patent applications.

Hosted by Philip Webber, a qualified UK and European patent attorney, and a partner in Dehns’ Life Sciences Group with a degree in Natural Sciences (Genetics) from Cambridge University and a PhD in molecular biology from Warwick University. His work is largely with start-ups, small/medium size companies and universities with inventions in the pharmaceutical or biotechnological fields and he has over 25 years’ IP experience.

Philip’s work involves writing and filing patent applications, and getting them granted for his clients all around the world. He has particular expertise in obtaining European patents (including dealing with EPO Opposition and Appeal procedures) and US patents. He also provides advice on IP landscapes and Freedom to Operate (FTO) advice on competitors’ patents.

The information in this webinar is given as guidance. Legal advice should be sought for particular matters. Dehns accepts no responsibility for any action taken / not taken on the basis of this webinar.
