SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Brooks Kusman shareholder Erin Bowles will be speaking at the Association of Intellectual Property Firms’ (AIPF) annual meeting. The Association of Intellectual Property Firms, or AIPF, is an international association of independent specialty firms that devote most of their practice to patent, trademark, and copywrite law. The 2019 Annual Meeting will be September 22-24, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia. The meeting will focus on practical techniques to address ongoing changes in IP law, technology, price constraints from clients, in addition to timely legal issues.

Bowles’s presentation called “One Spec To Rule Them All,” will use a mock case as a basis for discussion, in which a group of panelists will contrast requirements and best practices for drafting patent specifications in both the United States and Europe.

Bowles’ practice involves counseling domestic and international clients from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies on their intellectual property portfolios, with a focus on obtaining domestic and foreign patents, and handling patent prosecution procedures. Her practice also includes patentability investigations, infringement and right-to-use analysis, and intellectual property transactions and licensing agreements, trademark, trade dress, and copyright issues. She also has an expansive understanding of various mechanical and electromechanical technologies. In particular, she has experience representing clients and protecting intellectual property rights in the alternative energy, medical device, automotive technology, optics and lighting, aviation technology, and personal care product industries, among others.
