The Ritz-Carlton, Boston MA, 26th April 2018

Following the resounding success of LSIPR’s inaugural Life Sciences Patent Network series, which took place in Boston, Singapore and London in 2017, we are delighted to announce the 2018 conference schedule, which begins with Life Sciences Patent Network NORTH AMERICA which once again takes place at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston MA.
Over 50% of attendees are in-house counsel
Brought to you by Life Sciences Intellectual Property Review, the 2nd Annual Life-Sciences Patent Network NORTH AMERICA is the first of the 2018 patent conference series, which presents an unrivalled gathering of in-house patent counsel from established and fledgling pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies coming together to listen to updates on patent prosecution and enforceability from global jurisdictions, meet in informal discussion groups, and source specialist IP attorneys who can assist them with their IP portfolio strategies over the coming year.
The conference, taking place once again in Boston, MA on 26th April 2018, provides delegates with an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into the sector issues of critical current importance; listen to best-in-class case studies; keep abreast of the likely forward impact of key judgements and political jolts; and network with global patent peers.
Following on from the hugely successful LSPN conferences in London and Singapore, the Boston conference takes a broad global view of the patent protection landscape and then delves deeper into the topics of specific current interest. Extended round table discussion groups enable a couple of hours to be spent in small groups, sharing views on a range of topics of the delegates’ choosing. For fledgling bio-pharma manufacturers, the conference features a hugely popular open clinic to enable in-house counsel to quiz specialist private patent attorneys from around the globe on their own specific pressing patent issues.   

As well as conference presentations and the in-depth panel discussion along with audience Q&A, sessions and the discussion groups, a great deal of networking time is set aside throughout the day for networking opportunities, starting with welcome coffee, continuing through networking coffee breaks and a three course lunch – and culminating in informal drinks and canapés for all speakers, sponsors and delegates.  

"There was a good ratio of in-house counsels and patent professionals attending the conference. The roundtable sessions were particularly engaging"
