World Trade Center, Rotterdam
The half day seminar, which welcomed delegates from all over mainland Europe, was designed to help in-house patent counsel improve their performance and success rate in European Patent Office (EPO) Opposition proceedings. The impressive line-up of keynote speakers included Sim van Overbeeke, a highly experienced EPO Opposition Division member and chairman and Bas Pinckaers, an Intellectual Property lecturer and lawyer at Van Doorne NV, a top-tier independent Dutch law firm.

Partner at Haseltine Lake and seminar chairman, David O’Connell, commented, “We were pleased to welcome so many corporate IP practitioners from prominent European companies, representing a wide range of industry sectors at this year’s masterclass. Our two keynote speakers were able to share their valuable knowledge, with Sim van Overbeeke providing an “insider” view on how in-house IP teams can maximise their chances at Opposition proceedings and Bas Pinckaers speaking about the new Unified Patent Court, and its expected impact on European patent litigation. The wide range of views from the delegates led to some highly animated discussions and we are hopeful that all of the attendees benefited from our collective experience.”

Haseltine Lake’s team of Oppositions experts included Partners, David Brown, David Hammond and David Lewin, who shared their ideas and experience as well as discussing case studies and highlighting the importance of the EPO Oppositions framework and key practice points and winning strategies.
