Join Gowling WLG intellectual property lawyers Lisa Thorne and Mark Wilke as they answer some of the most common questions asked by patent applicants during the early stages of the patenting process. Have a patent question of your own? Come along and ask our experts.

The morning seminar is tailored to CEOs, patent managers and in-house counsel who already possess a rudimentary understanding of the patenting process.

Featured questions include:

  • Who qualifies as an inventor and what are the legal consequences of getting this wrong?
  • Who owns an invention and what steps should be taken to ensure proper chain of title?
  • What should be included in a patent application?
  • What can be safely disclosed to the public during the patenting process?

We look forward to having you join us! Breakfast will be provided.

This program will count for up to one hour of CPD credit toward the CPD requirements of the Law Society of British Columbia.
