Webinar: What’s IP Got to Do With It?? Nuts and Bolts of Intellectual Property for Non-IP Lawyers
September 25, 2023 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
1 Participatory MCLE Credits
Intellectual property (IP) is a practice area for which many clients seek legal advice (or don’t know they should). IP issues can be complex and daunting, from patents to copyrights to trademarks to trade secrets. Many solo practitioners or members of small firms serving their clients are often asked for general advice and consultation in these areas. This primer program will help familiarize non-IP lawyers with the basics of IP, typical issues, and relevant terminology so that they can understand their clients’ questions, what to look out for, and how to move forward.
