Firm Seminars

Annual U.S. Patent Law Seminar

Each year the firm holds a U.S. Patent Law Seminar mainly for Japanese-speaking participants as well as English-speaking participants. This seminar covers all aspects of patent practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and is conducted in both English and Japanese.

This 10-day patent prosecution seminar is highlighted by morning lectures by U.S. attorneys, an afternoon period for study of examples based on the topics covered during those lectures, followed by an interactive Japanese language discussion utilizing questions previously used in the U.S. patent agent’s Examination.

The Greenblum & Bernstein attorneys who develop and present the seminar represent approximately 220 years of combined work experience in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. These attorneys served in a variety of positions as Patent Examiners, Supervisory Patent Examiners, Special Programs Examiners, and Administrative Patent Judges at the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences.

The Seminar also provides separate social events, which in the past have included nightly dinner meetings, a tour of Washington D.C., and a Golf or George Washington's Mount Vernon tour on the weekend. The 2019 seminar will take place from September 23 – October 4, 2019. Please contact Daniel Moon or Mariko Kimura for more information.
