Fitch Even partner Amanda Lowerre O’Donnell will be a featured presenter at the Practicing Law Institute’s Advanced Patent Prosecution Workshop 2015: Claim Drafting & Amendment Writing, taking place on September 10–11, 2015, at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center.
The program is designed for private or corporate practitioners with patent experience who wish to improve their general claim drafting and amendment writing skills. Amanda will be one of three instructors facilitating two interactive workshops: “Advanced Claim Drafting” on September 10 and “Advanced Amendment Drafting” on September 11. During these sessions, attendees will learn to apply substantive patent law to practical patent prosecution problems and will receive individualized feedback from the faculty on claim drafting and amendment writing exercises.
Amanda will also participate in a panel discussion on September 11 on “Advanced Amendment Drafting Issues,” specific to the electromechanical arts. In addition, she will join other faculty members in a roundtable discussion of USPTO trends across all technology areas and will provide tips and recommend strategies for effectively prosecuting applications in view of these trends.

She counsels clients in the U.S. and abroad working in a variety of technical fields and product applications, including electronic components, energy and renewable energy applications, food processing, packaging technology, and medical devices. In addition, Amanda regularly advises clients on business method protections as well as open-source software issues.
