"In a brief dated March 5, 2008, the patent proprietors had submitted ten subsidiary requests in preparation for the oral proceedings before the EPO on October 10, 2009. Those requests were initially discussed during those proceedings."
Does the second sentence sound odd? Is there a way of replacing "those proceedings"? "There and then" would be too informal.
Thanks a lot!
That's exactly what you would say or 'at those proceedings'. Any reason why 'had submitted' and not 'submitted'?

From the sentences you supplied, yes:
A happened. Later, B happened
so a straightforward sequence of events.
