Toolkit Tuesday Lunch & Learn: IP Strategy: You Probably Don’t Have One, and Here’s Why That Matters

February 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


IP assets are assets like any other: they need to be built, maintained and deployed appropriately. Too patents, or IP of the wrong kind, can be a drain on your resources at a time when your money and attention are needed elsewhere. Insufficiently protected IP may lead to theft or appropriation of your hard work. How do you know what to protect? How do you even know what IP you have? What should you do with IP once it’s protected? An IP Strategy is a plan to answer these and other critical questions. Join Tom Nagy for a fun and relevant presentation on creating a right-sized IP Strategy for your company. Q&A to follow.
