The Show Must Go On! Snowy Lake Tahoe Welcomed the IP Law & Management Institute In-Person Since 2019!
After a two-year hiatus, the IP Law & Management Institute made its return for the first in-person conference since 2019 – and it was well worth the wait! The Ritz-Carlton in Lake Tahoe, California hosted IP executives from across North America for the IP Law & Management Institute. Legal professionals gathered in a snowed in Ritz Carlton for 3 days of networking, collaboration, and information exchange.
The 2022 IP Law & Management Institute offered IP Leaders, no matter what their current challenges and concerns in navigating this evolving IP landscape, the opportunity to connect with peers from other leading organizations across the United States, who served as a strong network and sounding board for ideas and information exchange on strategies to help guide one another through these turbulent times. Over the course of the event, a series of panels, interactive roundtables, think tanks, and keynote presentations were showcased, arming the attendees with the tools and actionable insights necessary to rise to today’s IP challenges and successfully lead in a disrupted and evolving IP landscape.
The event kicked off on Sunday November 6th, with a critical discussion on the key developments, priorities and updates at the USPTO, presented by Valencia Martin-Wallace, Deputy Commissioner for Patents at the USPTO. Mrs. Martin-Wallace covered a series of topics that set the tone for the conference as she discussed patent filing and trends for 2022/2023, the council for inclusive innovation, and international IP harmonization.
The sessions that followed allowed for attending executives to focus on actionable strategies to unlock your IP potential, while adapting and evolving your IP to meet the needs of the moment. A few session highlights that were captured include:
“What Keeps Corporate Counsel Up at Night?”
“Maximizing the Success of Your IP Department”
