As pharma advisors know, it is absolutely critical to keep up-to-date with the rapid pace of complex legal and regulatory developments in pharma patents to maintain a competitive edge.

The competition between generics and brand names is heating up. The stakes are high. Brand name pharma companies are demanding longer patents to justify the risk of increasingly expensive R&D. At the same time, public health systems and private health plans are lobbying for quick access to cheaper generic drugs. Strategies for taking timely advantage of the NOC regulatory process are crucial for generic producers to win the lucrative position of first generic to market. Millions of dollars are at stake.

This Canadian Institute conference on Pharma Patents will arm you with cutting-edge strategies and practical legal skills to help you to meet the challenges of the complex world of pharma patents. You'll hear from experienced industry lawyers, in-house counsel and pharma executives on important topics including:
Crucial legal developments in patent filings: what you need to know
The international implications of Bill C-9
The latest developments on the critical NOC Regulations
Key developments in United States patent law and their effect on Canadian companies
And much more!

And—don’t miss the benefits of the workshops: Fundamentals of Pharma Patent Law in Canada and Patent Protection and Patent Portfolio Strategies to Maximize Patent Life Cycles. Delegates will also benefit from a comprehensive set of conference materials, prepared by faculty for this conference, which will be a valuable resource both during the conference and long after it is over.
