Corporate INTL: PCT and Global IP Review

Corporate INTL: PCT and Global IP Review - Griffith Hack

18 November 2011

Life Sciences & Chemical Group Principal Janelle Borham recently presented the exclusive perspective on Australian Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and Global IP sector focus in the November edition of CorporateINTL.

Janelle also notes that, "
