What is the Life Sciences Patent Network Europe?

The imminent departure of the UK from the European Union, combined with the ever developing global patent landscape, means that there has never been a more critical need to remain up to date with the latest thinking on how best to now effectively secure and protect your patents.

Brought to you by the publisher of Life Sciences Intellectual Property Review, Life Sciences Patent Network EUROPE is the latest conference in the 2019 Patent Network series to bring together an unrivalled audience of intellectual property and licensing heads from established and fledgling pharma and biotech companies, along with private practice attorneys, and service providers.

The conference 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.

Why Attend LSPN Europe?

In the same way as at the conferences in Boston and Singapore, the London conference will take a broad global view of the patent protection landscape and then delve deeper into the regional 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 your choosing. For fledgling bio-pharma manufacturers, the conference will feature an open clinic to enable in-house counsel to quiz specialist private patent attorneys from around the globe on their own specific pressing patent issues. 
Over 50% of attendees are in-house counsel

Key issues for discussion at this year's conference include:

  • What steps should IP firms and corporate patent counsel take to prepare for Brexit?

  • What's the likely impact of Brexit on regulatory divergence?

  • Will the German constitutional case stop the UPC in its tracks?

  • Should potential SPC applicants apply early under existing EU rules or wait for new UK rules to come into force?

  • What's the impact of the UK Supreme Court ruling on the Doctrine of Equivalents?
