Advanced Drafting Techniques for Successful EPO Patent Applications

Many patent applications and patents are lost before the EPO, either before Opposition Divisions or before Appeal. Incorrect original drafting and added subject matter are recurrent problems.

Amendments made during the grant procedure to incorporate new prior art amount to added subject matter, which is often fatal in opposition procedure before the EPO and in nullity proceedings before national courts.

Sufficiency of disclosure can also be a problem and if initial disclosure is insufficient, amending it can amount to adding subject matter.

The purpose of this seminar is to identify the problems of added subject matter and sufficiency of disclosure and show how they can be easily avoided by careful drafting.

Key topics covered:

  • Article 123(2) – identify and deal effectively with added subject matter
  • How to avoid problems with amendments
  • Article 83 – the importance of sufficiency of disclosure

I really appreciate Mr Thomas – not only for his huge knowledge and experience about the rules and their application but also his ability to teach and explain in a very clear way.
