About the Docketing Excellence Webinar Series

Docketing paralegals, managers, and patent attorneys all know that docketing is a critical function for any successful patent prosecution operation. If not handled properly, docketing can be an area of major risk for law firms and corporations.

For this complimentary webinar series, we have pooled together docketing experts and managers from the Schwegman firm, Black Hills IP, and their respective clients to help educate on key docketing challenges and issues and share best practices on how to overcome them. Each of the Docketing Excellence webinars will provide a 30 minute panel discussion followed by a collaborative Q&A session.
