Navigating the Patent Gauntlet: Considerations for New Product Launch

Please join Fitch Even for a free webinar, “Navigating the Patent Gauntlet: Considerations for New Product Launch,” on February 23 at 9:00 a.m. PST / 10:00 a.m. MST / 11:00 a.m. CST / 12 noon EST.

A new product launch comes with various considerations and risks. This includes different types of searches such as patentability and freedom-to-operate (FTO). Obstacles may arise; however, there may be alternatives for achieving at least reasonably similar functionality while reducing the risk of infringing an existing patent.

During this webinar, our presenters will share a number of practical tips and cover these topics:

  • How to assess a new product and perform and analyze a patentability search
  • How to perform a focused FTO search and identify potential risks
  • Finding alternatives for proceeding when a potentially troublesome patent is identified during the FTO search
  • What to do with a potentially troublesome pending patent application
  • Comparison of the inter partes review, reexamination, and litigation options to reduce patent infringement risk

Our speakers are Fitch Even partners Nicholas T. Peters and David M. Kogan.

Nick focuses his practice on patent licensing, patent post-issuance proceedings, sophisticated patent portfolio management, and the prosecution of complex patents. He uses his litigation experience to advise clients on managing patent risk and leverages his extensive USPTO experience into successful representation in post-issuance proceedings work. Nick was ranked among the top 10 most-active attorneys representing patent owners in IPR proceedings based on data collected from 2013 through 2022.

David has substantial experience in both patent prosecution and litigation, handling matters relating to mechanical, chemical, pharmaceutical, and software technologies. David also counsels clients on worldwide IP portfolio management, strategic development, and licensing. He also has extensive experience performing patentability studies and freedom-to-operate studies for start-ups and global companies contemplating patenting their core technology and/or launching a new product.

A recording of this webinar is available through February 22, 2024.
