)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that Taylor Corbitt, Partner, Riley Safer Holmes & Cancila LLP will speak at a 2-hour webcast entitled “Strategic Patent Portfolio and Lifecycle Development for Pharma & Biotech Industries Significant Issues Live Webcast” This two-hour event is scheduled on January 12, 2017 @ 12:00pm - 12:00pm ET.
In a highly competitive and constantly changing market of today, the pharmaceutical industry is looking for suitable ways to extend the profitability of its products up to and beyond patent expiry, so medical device IP Portfolios are becoming increasingly relevant for pharma. Due to the expensive cost associated with the Research and Development (R&D), it is becoming crucial to implement integrated Life Cycle Management (LCM) strategies that would maximize revenues and extend the lifespan of patent portfolios. In cases where patent extension is not an option, and the product is nearing patent cliff, drug innovators are increasingly relying upon medical device IP to decelerate the pace of revenue loss from generic competition.
Without strong product LCM strategies, pharmaceutical companies are more likely to be exposed to legal challenges and revenue risks. In this two-hour live webcast, a stellar panel assembled by The Knowledge Group will offer a discussion on the most significant issues involving patent portfolio and LCM strategies. The panel will also provide a roadmap through the R&D process and will help the audience understand the best practices in minimizing the risks associated with patent portfolio and lifecycle development.
