This seminar will examine the conflicts issues that arise in patent prosecution, applicable rules for conflicts in patent prosecution, and best practices for identifying, addressing, and minimizing the potential risks and liability of such conflicts. It will also examine the Chris E. Maling v. Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP decision issued by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on December 23, 2015, dismissing a malpractice complaint filed against an IP law firm. In that case, the court held there was no actionable conflict of issue existing under Mass. R. Prof. C. §1.7 where attorneys in different offices of the same IP law firm simultaneously represented clients in prosecuting patents on allegedly similar inventions.
