May 11th - 12th, 2022 Protecting and Leveraging Innovation in the Life Sciences
Join us for the 4th annual LSPN North America - Spring conference!
Following the resounding success of LSIPR’s Life Sciences Patent Network series, we are delighted to announce the 2022 conference schedule, which begins with Life Sciences Patent Network North America - Spring which once again takes place in Boston, MA.
After nearly two years of no in-person events, we look forward to welcoming you back to a conference. We’re committed to prioritising your safety and wellbeing and as such, onsite events will have limited attendance.
It’s purely focused on patenting and litigation strategies in the life sciences, so the entire programme is relevant to you.
It’s designed to ensure that you remain up-to-speed with the current thinking of your life sciences peers – enabling you to benchmark your own practices against leading industry practitioners.
It’s interactive, so you can share your opinions and put questions to the speakers and panellists.
Over 50% of LSPN network attendees are in-house counsel
Brought to you by Life Sciences Intellectual Property Review, the 4th Annual Life Sciences Patent Network NORTH AMERICA presents an unrivalled gathering of in-house patent counsel from established and fledgling pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies coming together to listen to updates on patent prosecution and enforceability from global jurisdictions, meet in informal discussion groups, and source specialist IP attorneys who can assist them with their IP portfolio strategies over the coming year.
The conference, taking place once again in Boston, MA on May 11-12, 2022, provides delegates with an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into the sector issues of critical current importance; listen to best-in-class case studies; keep abreast of the likely forward impact of key judgements and political jolts; and network with global patent peers.
Following on from the hugely successful LSPN conferences in London and Singapore, the Boston conference takes a broad global view of the patent protection landscape and then delves deeper into the topics of specific current interest. Extended round table discussion groups enable a couple of hours to be spent in small groups, sharing views on a range of topics of the delegates’ choosing. For fledgling bio-pharma manufacturers, the conference features a hugely popular open clinic to enable in-house counsel to quiz specialist private patent attorneys from around the globe on their own specific pressing patent issues.
As well as conference presentations and the in-depth panel discussion along with audience Q&A, sessions and the discussion groups, a great deal of networking time is set aside throughout the day for networking opportunities, starting with welcome coffee, continuing through networking coffee breaks and a three course lunch – and culminating in informal drinks and canapés for all speakers, sponsors and delegates.
