LMW Headshot Photo 2015 (M0846622xB1386)In her Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article “Expediting Patent Allowance with In-Person Interviews,” patent attorney Lisa Warren explains why it may be beneficial to take advantage of in-person interviews with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office in order to expedite the allowance of a patent. Although options such as telephone or video conference interviews may be available and more convenient, Lisa notes:

sometimes there is simply no substitute for direct interpersonal interaction with an examiner to build rapport and improve the mutual understanding of the issues.”

Additionally, Lisa addresses relevant considerations when deciding if in-person interviews are preferable during the patent application process, as well as requirements for the interview itself. These and other insights from Lisa can be found in the full article.
