The 3rd Annual IP Defense Summit: Chicago

AIA, Alice, IPR: Defending IP
In A Disrupted World

Five years in and the AIA continues to transform IP litigation’s rules of engagement. The one certainty so far: in-house counsel need to constantly adjust their defensive strategies to ensure their patents’ survival. An up-to-date perspective on the (dis)advantages of new, as well as existing tools, is critical for a smart, cost-effective strategy.

Join the rest of your local IP community for a one-day only session full of practical insights and learnings from front line experts focused on the latest defensive strategies: navigating post issuance proceedings, managing risk and avoiding litigation, trade secrets, ethical issues for in-house counsel and much more.
