Our colleagues in the Intellectual Property group have an upcoming event in Washington DC that we’re so excited about that we just can’t help plugging it here.

Venable is sponsoring a half-day IP- law symposium on Wednesday, September 10 at our Washington DC offices. Our Venable colleagues who are experts in areas such as trademarks, patents, licensing, and copyright will update you on recent trends in these areas, and on how to negotiate and settle a case effectively. And you’ll have an opportunity to hear from outside counsel such as former Venable Partner Vicki Margolis, now head of IP at Kimberly-Clark, along with other in-house IP lawyers and academics. There will be plenty of time for networking at lunch and at a reception on the roof, next to our Bocce court, afterwards. And, depending upon which state you practice in, we may be able to get you CLE credit. There is so much overlap of IP and advertising law that we all plan to attend and hope you will too.

The complete agenda and invitation can be found here. We’d love to have you join us if you can.
