During this webinar, attendees will learn valuable lessons on how to navigate the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and how the process of obtaining a patent can be strategically tailored to an applicant's specific business objectives.
The presentation will cover these topics and more:

- How different approaches to patent filing and prosecution strategies can be matched to a given business goal
- A look ahead at proposed USPTO programs that may further an applicant’s ability to advance a particular business goal
In addition, attendees will hear about approaches to foreign patent filing, in connection with the above topics. The webinar will conclude with an interactive Q&A session.
