Presentation on Claim Construction

Tuesday, September 27 2022, 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM,

Please join us on September 27, 2022 for a presentation by Steve Susser from Carlson, Gaskey & Olds.

Topic: Claim Construction
Claim construction is perhaps the single most significant pretrial event in most patent litigation. Often, it is case dispositive. Even when not, it has the potential to reshape the case. And it is not only important for litigators. A patent prosecutor who can anticipate claim construction challenges will be able to lay the groundwork for a more effective enforcement of that patent.

In this presentation, you will learn about:

  • The typical claim construction process and some variations
  • How to prepare for the claim construction phase
  • Tips to make your claim construction presentation outshine your adversary’s
  • Common claim construction issues and how to solve them like –
    • How to choose the appropriate claim term for construction?
    • As the patent holder, do you ask for “plain and ordinary meaning” or propose a construction?
    • Is this the right time to argue indefiniteness?
    • At which point in the litigation do you want to address claim construction?
