Your Invitation & Networking

We welcome your presence and participation at a Luncheon Presentation on Wednesday, September 6th, at Tango & Malbec restaurant—just Southwest of the Galleria complex. There is no charge to attend, but each person is responsible for their own menu selection. 

Seating is limited to 30 to give ample time for one-on-one discussion and meeting.

Doors open at 11AM. There will be time for networking and to meet Detlef one-on-one between 11:30AM and the noon presentation. Lunch orders will be taken beginning at 11AM so that meal service can begin around 11:45AM, thus minimizing disruption during the presentation. We have the room until 2:00PM for those wishing to meet with Detlef after the presentation.

The Luncheon Presentation

Detlef von Ahsen, visiting partner from the German Intellectual Property firm of Kuhnen & Wacker, in Freising/Munich, Germany, will speak and discuss Avoiding the Traps: Practical Tips in Filing PCT Patent Applications in Europe.

Detlef is no stranger to the oil industry -- his early career included working for Baker.

Following Lunch

For those who are interested and have time to remain after lunch, Detlef will also be available for further discussion regarding the European Patent Convention (EPC) and claim drafting specialties under the EPC. This should be an interesting lunch for US patent attorneys, as well as technology managers and engineers whose work may involve Europe and the North Sea.
