About this event

The importance of considering different dispute resolution options in resolving high-stakes intellectual property disputes is often overlooked. This two-hour CLE program, featuring experienced speakers from government, international organizations, academia, and industry, will offer an honest and practical discussion of related topics, including:

  • Expert evidence and IP specialist mediators.
  • International IP organizations and government IP offices as drivers of dispute resolution innovators.
  • Standard essential patents: Dispute resolution models and unintended consequences.
  • Views from the trenches and command posts: Dos and don'ts.
  • Recent cases and other developments.
