About this seminar

Patent filings and lawsuits have hit all-time records in recent years. In a marketplace where employees are highly mobile, and data and company secrets are easily transmitted, there is a significant need for organizations to have strong measures in place to reduce the risk of losing intellectual property assets. This seminar will address current and practical strategies for building a patent portfolio, and defensive strategies for reducing enforcement risks and preventing loss of valuable intellectual property.
