On December 4, Alan M. Anderson attended and participated in a hearing (as well as earlier drafting of supporting memoranda) for an appeal held at the European Patent Office in The Hague, The Netherlands, on an invalidation proceeding commenced by a competitor against one of Alan Anderson Law Firm’s clients based in Germany. Arnt Aalbers of DeVries & Metman, based in Amsterdam, led the oral argument. At the close of the English-language hearing, the EPO hearing panel rejected the competitor’s petition in its entirety. Anderson is photographed here with Arnt, his associate, and the firm’s client at the EPO office shortly after the win.
