As intellectual property (IP) becomes more vital to many organizations, it is also becoming an attractive target for theft and infringement. Recent statistics have shown that IP theft in the U.S. jeopardizes millions of jobs and billions of dollars annually.

In an era where advances in digital technology further complicate enforcement, companies need to implement competitive IP management strategies to ensure that their assets are protected. However, in a post-pandemic world where many IP departments operate on a limited budget, this can be a challenge.

Join intellectual property attorneys Priya Sinha Cloutier (Lucosky Brookman LLP) and Ralph G. Fischer (Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC) in a comprehensive discussion as they take you through the essentials of safeguarding your organization’s IP portfolios with a particular focus on cost efficiency. Discover the best practices you can follow to enforce IP rights while recognizing the financial challenges and other pitfalls many IP owners face.

Key topics include:

    • Recent IP Infringement Statistics
    • How Companies Are Protecting IP: Current Trends
    • COVID-19 and IP Portfolio Management
    • Cost-Effective IP Protection Strategy
