Upcoming Webinar : Conflicts Management — Focus on IP Matters

At a recent Risk Roundtable, we asked participants which conflicts were most challenging to manage. The response was unanimous: subject matter conflicts associated with IP prosecution and litigation matters.
IP matters often involve subject matter conflicts which are notoriously hard to manage, requiring a different approach than ethical or commercial conflicts. The bring with them unique, complex challenges and questions, such as:
  • Who is the client, an individual inventor or the corporation where he or she works? 
  • When can a firm file similar patents for two different clients and when is the subject matter too close for comfort? 
  • Can a firm litigate against a patent that it previously achieved for a former client?
This webinar features four speakers who will explore current trends and approach for tackling these issues.

IP Matters, Intellectual Challenges
In this webinar, an expert panel will explore strategies and approaches firms are taking to address these issues and provide insights relevant to lawyers, general counsels, conflicts analysts, practice managers and IT leaders.
