Carpmaels' "SPC Summer Review" - 14 June 2018

Daniel Wise of Carpmaels & Ransford has written in to the Blog to say that there are a few last places available for Carpmaels’ annual “SPC Summer Review” event taking place next Thursday, 14th June 2018, from 17:30 (for a 18:00 start) at their offices in central London (One Southampton Row, WC1B 5HA). 

The seminar will focus on the latest interpretations of the CJEU’s test for a basic patent to “protect” the active ingredient, including the recent opinion from the CJEU Advocate General in Teva v Gilead (C-121/17), the concept of the “product” in SPC law, and Hugh Goodfellow will review the recommendations from the EU Commission’s review of the SPC system.  Drinks and canapés will be served afterwards. 

If you would like to join, please send an email to anastasia.duncan@carpmaels.com, with the subject line “I would like to attend the SPC Summer Review 2018”.  Attendance is free of charge.
