Valley Forge, Pa., July 2010 – Jonathan H. Spadt and Glenn Massina, of RatnerPrestia, will lecture at the 2010 Practical Patent Prosecution Training for New Lawyers (Boot Camp) in Washington, D.C. on August 25, 2010. Presented by the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), this seminar is directed to new IP professionals from around the globe who wish to gain knowledge about the basics of patent application strategies and prosecution. This is the 8th year that RatnerPrestia attorneys have been invited to speak at this event.
Mr. Spadt’s portion of the mechanical claim drafting lecture will focus on adding value to a business through strategic claim drafting to achieve business objectives. A key point will emphasize that inventions and patents don’t exist in a vacuum, but rather in the business context in which their technology is relevant. Mr. Massina will conduct a claim drafting workshop designed to provide new practitioners with hands-on instruction on drafting patent claims in the mechanical arts. This workshop will further demonstrate the principles Mr. Spadt covered in his lecture.
