Countries in the Middle East and Africa have taken significant steps to establish diversified knowledge-based economies. Recently, these countries have seen tremendous growth and a demand for life science technologies, particularly with respect to pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals and medical devices. This workshop will explore the requirements for protecting and enforcing life science inventions in countries such as Saudi Arabia, GCC, UAE, Egypt, South Africa, Algeria, Tunisia and more. Panelists will provide tips and suggestions to maximize patent protection in these countries, and will also address the evolution of enforcement regimes in these jurisdictions and how to best prepare for litigation should this become necessary.
Moderated by: Lisa L. Mueller, Michael Best
Panelists include: Sara Holder, Rouse and Sandra Clelland, Von Siedels/Rouse
