Next South West Regional Event: Bristol – Friday 14 August 2015

Following the hugely successful workshop event in Cardiff earlier this year, Jonathan McCartney and Kim Bayliss at Haseltine Lake have generously agreed to give a workshop on the topic of ‘Writing an Infringement Opinion’.

“This workshop will explore the law surrounding patent infringement in the UK, and will look at how to apply it when writing an infringement opinion. We will briefly discuss the relevant sections of the Patents Act, and will also look at some key cases including Kirin-Amgen. Using a real-life example we will consider claim construction (Can 230mm ever be between 100 to 180mm? And when does a sock fit ‘snugly’?) and we will walk-through the preparation and writing of an infringement opinion for a client. Finally, we’ll be passing on our P6 tips as a boost for those sitting their Finals in October.”

This workshop will take place at Haseltine Lake’s Bristol Office on the afternoon of Friday 14 August, followed afterwards by the Informals Summer BBQ.

Times and Locations:

1:30pm to 2:30pm – Networking lunch
2:30pm to 5pm – Workshop by Jonathan McCartney and Kim Bayliss
5pm onwards – BBQ at Toto’s Wine Bar (subsidised by CIPA)

As places on the workshop are limited, they will be available on a on a first come, first serve basis. Please send an email to to confirm your place as soon as possible.
