In this webinar, Graham Murnane and Dr Laura Fè will discuss the risks associated with filing late submissions during European patent opposition and appeal proceedings.

1) Legal and factual framework;
2) EPO Opposition and Appeal Board discretion;
3) Position as regards late-filed grounds, facts and evidence, claim requests and arguments;
4) Proposed revision of the ROPBA;
5) Common pitfalls and how to avoid these.
