Intellectual property law has become an increasingly specialized area of practice, with lawyers and entire law firms focused solely on specific aspects or forms of IP. Yet as businesses grow, change, and adapt to the rapid globalization of trade, clients are increasingly looking to their IP attorneys to appreciate and consider the impact of decisions made with respect to IP across a variety of legal disciplines.
Appropriate for both new associates and seasoned practitioners, this program will explore the intersection of IP with other areas of law, including tax, bankruptcy, trusts and estates, securitization, and franchising. Our cross-disciplinary panel of speakers will discuss key concepts in non-IP fields that may impact IP practice, facilitate issue spotting, and offer practical advice for considering IP issues in a broader and more holistic context.
Program Topics Include:
- Taxation of Intellectual Property Rights
- Complexities of IP in Bankruptcy
- Treatment of Digital Assets and Other Forms of IP in Estate Planning
- The Business of IP: Monetization and Trading IP Assets
- Franchising and IP: What You Need to Know in the U.S. and Latin America
- Ethical Considerations
