The near impossible tasks performed by IP and general counsel are getting even more challenging. As the world of IP has grown exponentially broader, so has the work to protect, enforce, and defend a company’s key IP assets become more complex.

Join your peers for an interactive discussion at the 10th anniversary of Foley’s complimentary IP conference IPx: Evolution to Revolution to share practical insights and solutions to meet these challenges. The conference is a thought leadership forum for IP, legal, and business leaders on IP development, protection, litigation, and transactions.
