Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC Northeast

Companies rely on opinions of counsel every day to guide strategic decisions and mitigate risk.  A well-designed and well-executed opinion can protect your company, products and in-house counsel.  

Changes in the law have made certain types of opinions more relevant and have reinforced the need to think strategically about how to obtain them. The Supreme Court's decision in Halo Elecs., Inc. v. Pulse Elecs., Inc. changed the standard used to determine willful infringement in patent cases, greatly increasing the possibility of enhanced damages.

Attend this live program and learn how to design opinions in order to protect the company and minimize the scope of waiver of the attorney-client privilege.

Join this breakfast panel and hear from seasoned IP professionals on how to protect attorney-client privilege and in- house counsel.

Registration & Breakfast: 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
Program: 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
