Parts Unknown:

Global IP in an Increasingly Connected Yet Foreign World


May 6-9, 2019
Sheraton Palo Alto

As business brings us to parts unknown, we navigate a world that is increasingly connected yet foreign with mounting regulatory scrutiny and complexities. Meanwhile, innovation and technological advancement continue to alter the very nature of our IP, driving us to confront new questions and the myriad laws that govern ever-changing markets. How do we develop global IP strategies when today’s tertiary markets may soon be tomorrow’s primary markets? When our partners can easily transport their businesses to other countries where our IP is not protected?

Hear from IP Counsel at 60+ Companies!

Space is limited. REGISTER NOW!
