Update: new speaker in our March 10, 2020 seminar

There are still a few vacant places for our seminar on international patent matters, held in Munich on Tuesday, March 10, 2020. The seminar provides a unique possibility to obtain first-hand insights from internationally renowned speakers and experienced practitioners. The seminar will provide ample opportunity for networking, including an informal closing reception.

Further, due to travel restrictions associated with the pneumonia situation in China, our invited speaker from China, Mr. Xiaolin Huang, will unfortunately not be able to attend. To be nonetheless able to provide an update on patent-matters in China, our associate Mr. Haidong Hao (Chinese Patent Attorney Qualification) will present on the Chinese practice. Mr. Hao has been permanently based in our Munich office since the beginning of 2019. Prior to joining Kraus & Weisert, Mr. Hao has gathered many years of experience as an in-house patent counsel for Chinese companies. He will enrich the discussion with insights of the Chinese patent landscape from an in-house perspective.

We are looking forward to hearing interesting lectures and an inspiring exchange of ideas between IP professionals from around the world.
