March Webinar

Derivation proceedings have yet to be instituted in number at the Patent Trial & Appeal Board, but that is not due to a dearth of such disputes. Quite the contrary, in-house counsel increasingly find themselves grappling with a multitude of disparate legal considerations relative to departing employees in the First-Inventor-to-File era. Protecting ongoing research has become a hybrid exercise in managing company patent policies together with trade secret misappropriation concerns, employee contract considerations and even potential criminal penalties. Swift assessment of such threats is especially critical to maintaining proprietary protections for valued research.

Please join me for an interactive webinar discussion of these new strategic considerations Monday, March 11th@2PM (EST). Register (here)

My co-presenter for this webinar will be Ropes & Gray Life Sciences IP Litigation Chair Filko Prugo and Trade Secret Specialist Peter Brody.

The formal portion of the webinar will begin at 2PM Eastern and will last for approximately 50-60 minutes. After the presentation there will be a Q&A period.
