View Session Speakers

How does one create a culture of creativity to spur innovation? While deciding what innovations needs protecting and how to combat the ever-growing threat of counterfeits and patent infringement? The Chief IP Counsel must run a department with employees that are often in different jurisdictions and from different cultural backgrounds and generations. What issues are these leaders focusing on as we finally emerge from the pandemic? How do they manage their teams while still making sure innovations and brands remain maximally (or at least ideally) protected?

This roundtable discussion will focus on the day-to-day issues facing Chief IP Counsel, as well as forward-looking strategic matters, including how Chief IP Counsel can (or should) permeate the C-suite with actionable advice that other C-suite executives can understand, appreciate and act upon themselves.

Our highly distinguished panel includes Chief IP Counsel from various industries, and two former Chief IP Counsel who is now General Counsel.
