Managing IP will host the second annual  MIP Life Sciences Forum 2017 in New York on September 13. The event will also be visiting the west coast in San Diego on September 15.

Over the past year IP owners in the life sciences sector have been facing unique
opportunities and challenges when protecting their patents. Rapid developments in
the landscape of drug discovery, research and pending proposals for reform in
Congress means that your strategies to protect your IP may need rethinking.

The Forum will give you the opportunity to:

  • Examine the latest developments in patent prosecution and its implications on the life sciences
  • Discuss key decisions and precedents at PTAB over the past 12 months
  • Understand IP pricing through the latest legislative developments
  • Examine PTAB decision times and how it is affecting your work load
  • Listen to considerations to opt in or out of the Unitary Patent
  • Join analysis on key trends in pharma litigation in the federal circuit


Senior IP and general counsel from leading pharmaceutical and life sciences organisations will share their experiences of managing IP matters and engage in lively debate on all the pertinent topics within life sciences from varied perspectives.
