Investigative and analysis specialist CHEMIR's (Maryland Heights, Mo., USA) analytical experts and Canadian law firm Gowlings’(Ottowa, Ontario, Canada) patent law experts will combine to provide a technical presentation titled, "Intellectual Property Considerations and Strategy in New Product Development." Anita Nador will discuss the legal implications of conducting research on patented products, the first sale doctrine and reverse engineering (also known as deformulation) of a patented product, both from the perspective of a new market entrant and a patent owner. Nador is a partner and registered U.S. and Canadian patent agent specializing in chemical and life sciences related patents at Gowlings. Dr. Albert Lee and Aaron Cassely, both scientists from CHEMIR, will present a case study of an adhesive deformulation to further illustrate these challenges.
