Litigation Insights for Life Sciences Patent Drafting.  Presenters include patent prosecutor Dr. Patrick Halloran and litigators Cook Alciati and Michael Dorfman of Gardella Grace P.A.  The program will explore recent Federal Circuit decisions addressing the written description requirement in the life sciences field with an eye toward what the patent prosecutor can learn from contested proceedings addressing the written description requirement to stave off later litigation surprises.
