Executives across multiple industries face new challenges in developing and guarding their IP assets in the current business and legal landscape, while also preparing for a significant set of unknowns. These unknowns stem not only from the recent deluge of broad IP decisions, but also from the establishment of a new administration that has proposed multiple changes in business and trade regulations that are largely unprecedented.
Now is the time to become more informed, proactive, and adaptable in your IP strategy and management. Join your peers at the Foley’s 13th Annual IP Conference “Forging Ahead: Strategies for the New Unknown” for interactive discussions and practical insights to boost your strategic agility. This conference is a thought leadership forum for IP, legal, and business leaders on IP development, protection, litigation, and transactions.
The conference will feature Honorable Ruben Castillo, Chief Judge, and Honorable John Z. Lee, Judge, both of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Honorable Jeff Kaplan, Judge (Retired) of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, as well as speakers from:
