Meet Managing IP during November and December

Women in IP 168

We are hosting a number of events over the next few weeks, and will also be attending others so we hope to see you at some of them

Women in IP

Women in IP Forum 2015

Coming up soon is our International Women's Leadership Forum, which is in Palo Alto on November 29.  This is the third time this event has been held in California and this year's Forum is bigger and better than ever. It provides an opportunity for women working in IP to discuss topics including alternatives to litigation, practical strategies for patent protection and developments in licensing and trade marks. 

The event is inclusive, and men as well as women are welcome to attend. Registration is free for in-house counsel/heads of legal. Paid-for attendance includes Bronze level membership of the Women in IP Global Network. Register online here and find out more about  last year's event here.

European patent developments

European Patent Reform Forum 2015

Next up are our two editions of the European Patent Forum USA, which are being held in Palo Alto on November 30 and New York City on December 2. These events provide a great opportunity for US practitioners (both in-house and in private practice) to get the latest news on developments in Europe. These include the impact of Brexit, the latest news on the Unitary Patent and UPC, enforcement and industry-specific issues.

As usual, registration is free for in-house practitioners: find out more here.

We have a number of other events planned for early next year in both the UK and US: see our events page for the latest news.
