Patent attorney to present March 29 webinar about U.S. and Europe

Linda Nattler, a shareholder with the Ann Arbor office of Brinks Gilson & Lione, will explain how the United States and Europe scrutinize parts of the patent disclosure differently and discuss ways to approach these distinctions in an hour-long webinar at 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 29. To register, visit Events at

Her webinar, "Understanding Patent Applications and Methods for Best approaches in Europe and the U.S.," will provide information on:

- How to draft patent applications that are best suited to meet the disclosure standards of the U.S. Patent Office as well as the European Patent Office;

- A broad overview for later claim amendments during prosecution in both jurisdictions;

- Why these approaches improve the chance of obtaining patents with the broadest scope possible, both domestically and internationally.

A German native and an alumna of Cooley Law School, Nattler focuses her intellectual property law practice on patent prosecution and IP portfolio management, with a particular emphasis on the areas of mechanics, electronics, hydraulics and computerized processes.

Prior to joining Brinks, Nattler gathered extensive experience in U.S., European and German patent prosecution. While employed in Europe, she was admitted to practice before the European Patent Office and is one of very few U.S. attorneys admitted to practice before both the European Patent Office and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
