David Brown “wins” at the EPO’s 2018 Board of Appeals and Key Decisions Conference

28 十一月 2018

David Brown, Haseltine Lake Partner from the Chemistry and Life Sciences Team, participated in the EPO’s prestigious Board of Appeals and Key Decisions 2018 conference. The event took place on the 14th-15th of November at the central EPO building in Munich, Germany. 2018 marked the 8th year of the event which provides a unique opportunity for patent attorneys to get an up close look at the Boards of Appeal case law and practice. This year’s conference also looked at the reform processes under way regarding the structure of the Boards of Appeal and their Rules of Procedure.

David represented the opponent in a mock Board of Appeals opposition hearing in front of the 250 attendees at the conference, among whom were patent attorneys, lawyers, national judges, patent office examiners and members of the EPO Boards of Appeal (so no pressure!). The mock hearing was decided in David’s favour, we are pleased to report! The decision board consisted of Kevin Garnett QC (formerly a Chairman of one of the Boards of Appeal), Bernhard Noll (member of Board 3.5.03) and Paul Scriven (Chairman of Board 3.4.01).
