September 19, 2019 | 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Perkins Coie LLP
Overview (Program Summary)
UPDATED: THE 4/2 CLE HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO 9/19
If you think patent filings only matter to patent attorneys, think again. 3 million patents applications are filed worldwide every year, by companies of every size and in nearly every industry. This generates public data revealing business objectives, legal budgets, and hidden competitors. This CLE is designed for counsel with and without patent experience. We will present the public data attached to any patent filing and show how that data can be understood using straightforward analytics, with examples for small and large companies. Our in-house panelist will share examples of how companies develop and maintain their patent portfolios, and how patent intelligence can give competitive advantage to a business—and to its legal department.
