Many people are often intimidated by the process of obtaining a patent, and

sometimes may not understand what is going on, even when they have

engaged a patent attorney. This seminar will give you a basic inside look

of the inner workings of the patent process, from filing to issuance, along

with enforcement issues for both domestic and foreign patents.



Ernest Huang is a Patent Attorney at Sughrue Mion, PLLC. His practice

Ernest has also provided counsel to several companies for both foreign

Patent Attorney for Sughrue Mion, Ernest was an intern at Zimmermann und

Partnerin Munich, Germany, where he studied aspects of foreign patent law

including conducting research for European opposition cases.
