Directors John M. Covert and Gaby L. Longsworth, Ph.D. presented the “Patent Term Extension Considerations for BioPharma Patents” webinar on Wednesday, December 13, 2023.

It is important for practitioners to understand the intricacies of patent term extension (PTE) procedures and strategy, and how an extended patent relates to overall exclusivity. During the webinar, our presenters covered the following topics:

  • The interplay between Patent Term Extension (PTE), Patent Term Adjustment (PTA) and obviousness-type double patenting (ODP);
  • Strategies for choosing a patent to extend and multiple PTE requests;
  • Pitfalls of interim extensions;
  • The various statutory provisions and the responsibilities of the USPTO and the FDA; and more!
