American Conference Institute’s Advanced Summit on Medical Device Patents.
A medical device specific intellectual property conference to provide you with practical and tactical strategies for patent filings and challenges, which are more critical than ever in this time of sweeping change.
In response to the challenges facing the device industry in this daunting economic climate including the looming medical device tax, ACI’s Advanced Summit on Medical Device Patents provides a forum for the key players- preeminent in-house IP counsel, patent prosecutors and litigators, the PTO, and judges – to unite and share their collective knowledge to provide you with the most up to date strategies you can immediately incorporate into your practice. Featuring first-hand insight from the USPTO and retired judges in medical device litigation hotbeds including the Eastern District of Texas, this event is the premiere conference for medical device companies to devise strategies to strengthen patent rights and seize market share.
A leading industry report estimated that the device industry was worth more than $300 billion in 2011 with the U.S. representing the largest market with sales in excess of $95 billion. At this conference, expert international and domestic practitioners will arm you with the tools to heighten patent protection in both established and emerging markets.
