Executives to Explore the Year’s Most Compelling Intellectual Property Innovations and Regulations at Consero’s 2015 Global IP Management Forum

Forum to Be Held June 7-9 in San Francisco, Calif.

BETHESDA, MD – (May 21, 2015) – Chief IP and Chief Patent Counsel will convene in San Francisco, Calif. on June 7 – 9 to discuss today’s pressing intellectual property concerns during Consero’s 2015 Global IP Management Forum. Consero Group, an international leader in orchestrating high-level, invitation-only events for senior executives, will host the Forum at the Fairmont Hotel.

“The Chief IP Counsel of today’s global businesses must contend with more obstacles than ever before, and, as a result, their IP strategies must be at once aggressive, sturdy and flexible,” said Paul Mandell, Founder & CEO of Consero. “Consero’s 2015 Global IP Management Forum will address current legal business challenges faced by today’s Chief IP and Chief Patent Counsel, providing a rare opportunity to share best practices and develop the strategies necessary to navigate today’s complex global IP environment successfully.”

“The Forum will address how to balance the need for full global IP protection with what corporate finances can tolerate,” said Jessica Druckman, Founder & SVP of Program Development at Consero. “We will explore crucial topics, such as how to use analytics to set and justify an IP budget, as well as creative ways to reassess a broad IP portfolio to identify which patents will contribute to a company’s bottom line.

Additional topics will include:

  • Crafting and Sustaining a Global Five-Year IP Plan: This session will identify what strategies can be used to “weatherproof” a plan while maintaining the necessary flexibility to respond to IP issues as they arise, as well as the greatest obstacles to a five-year plan.
  • The Troll Age: Shielding Your IP Against Non-Practicing Entities: In this session, executives will explore how to protect IP assets against NPEs without becoming distracted, as well as what avenues to consider before engaging in lengthy and costly NPE litigation.
  • Old Dog, New Tricks: Forward-Thinking Trends for the AIA: This session will identify in what specific ways global IP strategy can be restructured to address the most recent provisions under the AIA, as well what new opportunities exist to patent technologies under the AIA.
