A team of Foley partners from the firm's Intellectual Property Practice, along with Aoyama & Partners, will launch the 2016 U.S. Patent Prosecution Seminar Series in Tokyo on June 30, 2016 and in Osaka on July 1, 2016.

U.S. patent law may be one of the most complex and sophisticated areas of law in the world. For today’s Japanese companies, it is important to know the strategies and considerations of U.S. patent applications to help ensure their effectiveness.

Please join Foley & Lardner LLP and Aoyama & Partners for the launch of our 2016 U.S. Patent Prosecution Seminar Series, where we will delve into this critical topic and provide meaningful answers and insights. Session one of the series will focus on effective patent drafting, claims, damages, and maximizing the royalty base. This session — and all that follow — will be held in both Tokyo and Osaka for the benefit of companies located in the Kanto and Kansai areas.

It is ideal for members of the legal and/or IP departments of Japanese companies who currently have, or will have, responsibility for supervising IP prosecution in the United States. For all others, this series will also be useful, as long as you are involved in U.S. IP matters. It is recommended that participants of this series have a basic understanding of U.S. patent prosecution.
