Chemical Patent Practice
The Chemical Patent Practice Committee focuses on U.S. and foreign patent prosecution, litigation, licensing and regulations and laws relating particularly to chemical inventions, including pharmaceuticals, specialty chemicals and polymers. Committee activities have included providing comments to the USPTO on examination guidelines, several of which were adopted by the USPTO and incorporated into the final examination guidelines.
