European Biotech Patent Case Law Webinar
European Patent Attorneys Simon O'Brien and Antony Latham present our latest webinar update of new and important EPO biotechnology patent case law.
The webinar will include discussion of the latest European biotech patent case law developments.
Simon O'Brien was appointed partner in 2010 and is a Chartered and European Patent Attorney. His area of expertise encompasses both biological and chemical subject matter including the fields of molecular biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, food technology and nutrition, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, and polymer chemistry. Simon advises on all aspects of patent law, including patent drafting and prosecution, opposition and appeal proceedings.
Simon has lectured at numerous conferences on life science issues in the patent arena, particularly in the fields of personalised medicine. IAM Patent 1000 writes that Simon's "contentious experience means that he can turn a weak biochemical patent into an unimpeachable one before the examiners."
Partner Antony Latham joined D Young & Co in 2012. He specialises in the life sciences and pharmaceuticals sectors, with a particular focus on RNA therapeutics, vaccines, infectious diseases, antibodies and gene editing. Antony advises a range of clients - including some of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies - on the drafting, prosecution, opposition and defence of their patents. He has successfully represented clients in numerous contentious legal proceedings before the European Patent Office (EPO) opposition divisions and Boards of Appeal.
