Schedule a meeting with Angelyn at the conference.

Boston, MA — Lando & Anastasi, LLP (L&A) is pleased to announce our sponsorship of the Life Sciences Patent Network (LSPN) North America–Spring 2024 Conference being held May 8–9, 2024 at the Sheraton Boston. Among the impressive lineup of more than 50 speakers is our partner, Angelyn Larkin, Ph.D., who leads L&A’s Life Sciences practice.

Angelyn will conduct an extended roundtable discussion on obviousness-type double patenting, a key topic followed closely by many in the life sciences industry and beyond. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss in small groups the challenges of ensuring that the full statutory and adjusted patent term is protected while incentivizing innovation and collaboration with third parties. She will also discuss tips and tricks for rebutting rejections from the patent office when rendered. The debate surrounding obviousness-type double patenting—also called nonstatutory double patenting—often focuses on finding a balance between many competing interests, and the risks related to these issues are not always readily apparent. Courts and policymakers continue to grapple with how to best address these issues in patent law, as evidenced by recent decisions by the Federal Circuit and lower courts.

Angelyn commented, “Obviousness-type double patenting is an issue that is important for companies of all sizes to consider when building patent portfolios from the ground up and can present itself both when a company is working on its own or engaging with collaboration partners. While the courts have provided some guidance in recent years, there are still many open questions for patent attorneys to weigh. I look forward to sharing insights and engaging in discussions with my colleagues on this important topic.”

L&A is excited to be participating in LSPN’s outstanding life sciences event this spring. Spanning topics from patentability, strategy, prosecution, and litigation, this conference will provide insights across the spectrum of life sciences patent protection in the U.S. Top U.S. and global firms and speakers from all corners of biotech, pharmaceutical, and medtech will convene in Boston for two days of networking, learning, and advancing the life sciences industry. We look forward to meeting with clients and prospective clients at this event and speaking with and hearing from other experts in the field on the biggest patent challenges facing the life sciences industry today and how to successfully handle them.
