Partner Samson Helfgott will speak at a live interactive web conference on Patent Cooperation Treaty Strategies.

The use of the PCT continues to increase exponentially around the world. This program will address many strategic issues in deciding when and how to use PCT effectively. It will include the different routes of filing PCT applications i.e. based upon a provisional filing, a non-provisional filing, a foreign priority filing PCT first. It will address how to select the appropriate searching authority available to US applicants, including US, Europe and Korea. It will discuss when to amend the PCT application during the international phase, as well as discussing how to enter the national phase either as a national stage application or through the by-pass route.
