Partner Samson Helfgott will speak at the 13th Annual Patent Cooperation Treaty Seminar on Thursday, July 16 and Friday, July 17.

Topics of the conference include:

  • Can international applications for entry into the US national stage be revived, despite recent court cases that put this into question?
  • Should PCT applications be based on a provisional application, a non-provisional application, or no application at all?
  • How to select foreign countries for national stage entry at the end of the PCT international phase
  • How can the WIPO databases help with searching and monitoring of competitors’ patents?
  • How to best write PCT application so that it is well suited not only for the United States but also for other patent offices such as the EPO?
