This event will attempt to convey the examiner’s perspective of the patent and trademark examination process using a panel of former patent and trademark examiners. The event will start with brief presentation of the Patent and Trademark organization, examiner training, the production system, and general tips on how to interact with an examiner. The panel will endeavor to not only help explain PTO policy and procedure, and how these might influence examiner-practitioner interactions, but also will try to reflect on the different examiner styles and how to effectively interact with examiners.
