3rd Annual Corporate Intellectual Property Institute (CIPI)
Sutherland Partner John L. North is speaking at the 3rd Annual Corporate Intellectual Property Institute (CIPI), November 3-4, 2009, at the Georgia State University Student Center in Atlanta, Georgia. John is moderating a panel entitled "Navigating Your Patent Prosecution Team Through Ethical, Conflict and Litigation Challenges on a Lean Budget."
The current economic downturn requires virtually all inside IP counsel to trim their budgets substantially, while at the same time advancing mission-critical IP strategies. This panel of experienced inside IP counsel will provide practical advice regarding strategies they have developed to balance these often competing goals: How to develop conflicts policies that make sense? How to ensure that inside and outside counsel focus on the key strategies? How to make alternative fee arrangements work? How to make sure that patents are prosecuted in an ethical fashion that will not give rise to attorney fee, inequitable conduct, and/or antitrust challenges should the company seek to enforce the patents?
Sutherland is also a proud sponsor of the CIPI, which allows in-house IP professionals to discuss the issues they currently face. The CIPI provides in-house IP professionals the opportunity to hear common corporate issues and to network locally and nationally. Speakers from corporations, large and small, will be in attendance. The event is open to all IP professionals, including in-house, law firm and consultant professionals.
