Webinar: The Modern FTO Framework: Strategies for Connected, Risk-Reduced Innovation – Sponsored by ClearstoneIP

February 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST


With legal processes undergoing profound transformation, freedom-to-operate is ripe for modernization. Patent data has become unwieldy and it is no longer feasible to maintain analysis in spreadsheets as new purpose-built models are available to instinctively guide processes, integrate patent data, and capture decisions.

In our last webinar, we covered common FTO issues and best practices from both in-house and outside counsel perspectives. The audience response was tremendous, and clearly demonstrated keen interest in FTO management from all corners of the industry.

Please join us on Thursday, February 17, at 11 AM EST as we dig into the practical mechanics of FTO investigations to achieve responsive and thorough analysis to inform critical business decisions. This interactive webinar moderated by Gene Quinn will feature perspectives from Rich Roberson, Senior Patent Counsel at Adidas, Lisa Adams, Partner at Mintz, and Gabe Sukman, Co-Founder and CEO, ClearstoneIP.

In addition to taking questions from the audience, the panel will discuss:

  • The Digital Review: a modern FTO framework for legal and R&D collaboration
  • Protecting attorney-client privilege and work product through environmental controls
  • Automated competitive monitoring strategies as part of your FTO program
  • Benefits of a claims analysis library and leveraging historical work in future FTO projects
