Managing IP, in partnership with Hoffmann Eitle, launched the inaugural MIP Euro Law Conference in Munich on June 16 & 17. Following the success of the
MIP European Patent Reform events in Munich over the last three years, demand
has called for a broader intellectual property event in the city.
The MIP Euro Law Conference 2016 went beyond the UPC to give a thorough analysis of the European IP market from both patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law. It delved into EPO case analysis, filing strategy management, IP monetisation techniques and litigation aspects as well as offered debate, statistics and case law studies to help delegates better manage their IP portfolios.
As a lead-in to the conference, Hoffmann Eitle also hosted a three-day training course, on 13, 14 & 15 June, which was developed to provide an interactive focus on practical advise for dealing with patentable inventions, disclosure issues, drafting pitfalls, patent prosecution work, appeals, patent litigation, oral proceedings at the EPO and the basic concepts of the UPC. The course included a visit to the European Patent Office to put all that delegates had learned into practice.
Key takeaways and event photos will be made available shortly.
