Book Abstract
Patent Ethics: Prosecution, by David Hricik and Mercedes Meyer, is an essential guide to the ethical issues arising in the course of the patent prosecution process. By providing relevant rules and case law, it allows practitioners to identify ethical problems before they arise and to address them most effectively when they do. Patent Ethics: Prosecution is one of two volumes on patent ethics -- the second focuses on litigation -- and is the first of its kind to combine the United State Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) rules with commentary by the authors, which distills the authors' own experience and expertise in patent prosecution into effective practice strategies.
The Second Edition features new analysis of current client conflicts in patent practice, including when prosecution and opinion work become "adverse" to a client, the conflicts of interest created by the AIA's approach to the best mode, and duty of candor post-Therasense. It also includes an updated PTO Code completely annotated with OED decisions on each provision.

• A unique and well-organized tool for confronting practical ethical issues and conflicts of interest that increasingly arise in patent prosecution
• Analyzes essential patent ethics rules and case law, as well as practice-oriented strategies and examples to assist practitioners who need to resolve "real-world" issues
• Written by practitioner (Meyer) and scholar (Hricik) with many years of experience in patent prosecution

"Provides practical advice on best practices, along with exemplary language for use in written communications with clients and potential clients, and should be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of many patent prosecutors...A thorough, comprehensive, and up-to-date treatise on this important and timely topic." --The IP Law Book Review
"PATENT ETHICS does an excellent job of identifying the many potential "ethical" pitfalls confronting these practitioners, in a manner that is comprehensive, up-to-date and practical, filling an important niche that to my knowledge is not addressed in any other book." --The IP Law Book Review
