See what others have to say about IPWatchdog LIVE

“LIVE 2023 truly exceeded the high quality of the earlier two events. They were already my favorite conferences of recent years, and the newest version sets an American record of frank, informed and valuable discussion of key current issues by an all-star team of real experts. To say they were all “thought leaders” understates the reality of their stellar exploration of the issues addressed.  The audience is always as impressive as the panelists—another measure of IPWatchdog’s ever-expanding stature and credibility.

-The Honorable Paul Michel, Retired Chief Judge, Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit

IPWatchdog LIVE again proved to be a great conference, and a welcome opportunity to convene with the leaders in IP.  The panel discussions were informed and insightful, and the networking in the hallways and at the receptions was stellar.  You consistently do a magnificent job of bringing together a collegial yet diverse group of speakers, articulating a variety of alternative, and sometimes conflicting, perspectives, but all in the spirit of improving our IP system.  It’s an event where insightful commentary and a healthy contest of ideas plays out to everyone’s benefit.

– Brian O’Shaughnessy, Partner and Chair of IP Transactions & Licensing Group at Dinsmore & Shohl

“It was a privilege to join top practitioners in our field at IPWatchdog Live 2023 to speak about the most important current topics in intellectual property law.  Both the exchange of ideas during the panel discussions and the ad hoc discussions among the attendees advance our practice and progress on policy matters.  Thanks to Gene and Renee Quinn and their IPWatchdog staff for organizing an impactful event.”

-Mark Vallone, Chief Patent Counsel, IBM Americas

“IPWatchdog presents amazing conferences – this one had over 250 attendees from all over the world, and a wide variety of presentations on cutting-edge IP issues. It’s the brainchild of Gene Quinn and Renee C Quinn. I congratulate them and their hard-working staff on their achievement. I learned a tremendous amount regarding litigation trends and substantive law developments in AI, trade secrets, litigation funding, and other subjects, all of which will help me hit the ground running in upcoming IP mediations. I hope my panel contributed a bit to the learning as well.”

-Jeff Kichaven, Jeff Kichaven Commercial Mediation

“IPWatchdog puts on the best IP conferences, bar none. The conferences have first class speakers, first class topics, first class networking, even first class food and drink. People really respond to the warm and friendly family atmosphere and they open up in ways I never see at other conferences. You really feel like a part of the IP family when attending their conferences and I try to never miss one. I also learn far more practical tips for my practice than all the other conferences combined. Highly recommended to anyone in the IP industry!”

– John Rogitz, Managing Partner, Rogitz & Associates

“IPWatchdog LIVE is not a runner up anymore, and certainly not another IP conference, but THE established IP forum to attend!”

– Daniel Papst, Managing Director, Papst Licensing

“What IPWatchdog has developed in their live events is nothing short of remarkable.  They have gathered an incredible group of practitioners who are true experts in their field.  I would recommend to anyone seeking to improve the depth of their understanding on current, IP issues.”

– Brian Johnson, Partner, Axinn, Veltrop & Harkrider

“The 2023 IPWatchdog LIVE Conference was a grand slam! It combined valuable IP-related legal updates), deep thinking and great practical advice on hot legal areas (AI), top interviews with judges and patent bar leaders, and unsurpassed networking opportunities. Another big win for IPWatchdog.”

– Alden Abbott, Former FTC General Counsel; Senior Research Fellow, Mercatus Center at George Mason University

“Consistently a fantastic conference for both in-house and outside counsel. Very valuable and unique content.”

Mark Leonard, General Counsel, Sunsweet Growers, Inc.

“IPWatchdog LIVE is not a runner up anymore, and certainly not another IP conference, but THE established IP forum to attend!”

Daniel Papst, Managing Director, Papst Licensing

“I generally avoid IP seminars as they are boring, not useful to me or my practice, and/or repetitive.  This seminar was the exception. I look forward to attending the next one and to learning more useful and new things.  Thank you for a well-organized and useful program.”

– Steven Adkins, Partner, Barnes & Thornburg

“So many great speakers on so many topics that your only problem will be deciding between which of the simultaneous breakout sessions you can attend.”

-Jeffery Langer, General Counsel, Zoeller Company

“I thought the LIVE program went really well this year – I was actually impressed with how similar it felt to the first few programs in Richardson, despite not being in a patent litigation hotspot like Texas (although obviously the DC area has its own gravity in that regard). But a lot of my favorite people from Texas came anyway, and with the added people who found Herndon easier to get to – the networking was better than ever. The programs and speakers were great too – kudos on another successful year.”

-Christoper Freeman, Director, Burford Capital

“The IPWatchdog conference content was excellent, the speakers consistently demonstrated expertise and insight into their topics, and the attendees were leading figures in the field of intellectual property.”

-Steve McBride, Partner, Carmichael IP

“IPWatchdog consistently puts together topical and informative presentations, and the opportunities for networking at the LIVE events are second to none!”

-Brandon Helm, Partner, AddyHart P.C.

I know there’s a ton behind the scenes that I don’t see at IPWatchdog and IPW LIVE, and you are doing a great job to make it all seem flawless and a fantastic experience for attendees. Thank you. From information delivery, to organization, to food, forums, and friends, the past three years I’ve attended, each one has provided something new. Discussions with others this year included “what happens to this resource if Gene or Renee are gone”, and we all quickly change the subject because we don’t want to think on that and we don’t know how to replace it. I pray for continued health and that you keep on blessing the IP community with your gift. I stand on your shoulders. “

-Jeff Hardin, Inventor Rights
