Webinar: Dealing with third-party patents in Europe

When: Thursday 15 October | 18:00 – 19:00 (BST)

Speakers: Sean LeachAndrew White & Juliet Redhouse


A patent or patent application in the hands of a third-party, which covers a product which you wish to exploit, presents a difficult challenge, and even more so if it is in a foreign jurisdiction. Preliminary qualitative research indicates that, in the US at least, the options to monitor and mitigate risks from European patents are not widely known.

In this webinar, partners Sean LeachAndrew White and Juliet Redhouse will discuss some of the relatively under-used and cost-effective options available to practitioners, such as anonymous third party observations, oppositions and opinions. They will also discuss what action should be taken and when to most cost effectively mitigate the risks that may be posed by third-party rights in Europe.
