SBOT and DBA IP Sections PTO Day

The Women in IP Law Committee and the New Lawyers Committees bring you PTO Day featuring a networking lunch followed by an opportunity for tours of the Texas Regional Office (TXRO) and rotating breakout sessions with PTAB Judges, Trademark Examining Attorney(s) and Supervisory/Primary Patent Examiners from each Technology Center (TC).

This event is by invitation only

The rotating breakout sessions provide an excellent opportunity to interact with your colleagues at the USPTO about the PTAB, the Trademark Office and the TCs.  Take advantage of these experts to learn about best practices, tips and hints for working with the Office.  This is a come-and-go event with Q&A.  Please feel free to attend one or mulitple breakout sessions and please indicate which sessions you would be interested in attending to aid in the planning.
