Filing for patents and other intellectual property protection to safeguard your company’s technologies requires a series of strategic decisions. These decisions are often left up to the lawyers, but when business leaders, engineers, and scientific professionals understand the process, pros and cons, and potential costs, it creates a much more collaborative and goal-oriented approach.

Patterson Thuente IP attorney Amy Salmela will discuss the patenting process, leading us through a series of filing decisions, including:
Whether or not to file a provisional application
The effects of patenting vs. publishing
How to approach international filing decisions

Thursday, March 22 — 7:30 – 9 a.m. Lunch and Learn
at UEL — 1000 Westgate Drive St Paul 55114
