How do you "win the game" of managing and protecting your IP? We face continued murkiness on IP issues after the AIA implementation and landmark decisions by the Supreme Court and Federal Circuit.

While IP decision makers are striving to bring clarity and incorporate the implications into their day-to-day IP management, the urgency to protect business interests escalates.

Foley invites you to our ninth annual complimentary IP conference, designed as a thought leadership forum for IP, legal, and business leaders on IP development, protection, litigation, and transactions.

Specific topics to be addressed include: 

  • Global IP Enforcement — When and Where to Act
  • Trade Secrets — Protecting and Enforcing What Matters Most
  • GC Panel — IP Strategies That Propel the Company's Business
  • Strategic Use of Post-Grant Challenges at the USPTO
  • Views From the Bench — Federal District Court Judges Discuss IP Cases and Local Rules and Practice
  • Mountains Versus Molehills — Right-Sizing the Approach in Defending Against NPE Claims

Break-Out Sessions

  • Smarter Integration of AIA Into Your Patent Practice
  • Frontiers of Marketing and Promotion: Business and IP Risks

This conference is complimentary for in-house counsel guests of Foley, but advanced registration is required. For more information, please contact Jennifer Hoganson at jhoganson@foley.com.
