The practice of intellectual property law is global and diverse. Our clients’ IP needs are not confined to a particular state, or even a particular country. Our clients are business owners, innovators, creators, and artists. Their work regularly crosses state line, so why shouldn’t we?
Welcome to IP Without Borders, the 44th IP Institute at the spectacular Wynn Las Vegas!
We have a fantastic line up of programming and events scheduled for you all. We are fortunate and excited to bring together preeminent speakers from leading companies, government, and law firms to share their tips and tricks. With 12.5 hours of MCLE credits – including bias, competency, and ethics – we promise to keep you current on legal developments and trends in IP law. We have also incorporated some outstanding networking opportunities throughout the conference.
Thursday kicks off with Nuts and Bolts sessions on patent, copyright, trademark, and licensing; featuring both fundamental information for new attorneys in these areas as well as best practices more experienced practitioners will find valuable. Afterward, mix and mingle with your fellow attendees at our Welcome Reception at Top Golf for a fun and unique networking opportunity.
Friday’s programming spans the IP spectrum and features panels on privacy, franchising, AI, blockchain, and more. Attendees are then invited to enjoy a celebratory and entertaining meal as we congratulate and honor this year’s 11th Annual Vanguard Awards recipients. Stick around for an after-hours networking event you won’t want to miss.
The programming continues on Saturday as we explore implicit bias in the law, patent damages, loot boxes, and so much more! During lunch, we will have a special “speed networking” event so you can better connect and collaborate with fellow attendees. Finally, please join us at the Mob Museum after closing remarks for an interactive journey through the history of organized crime and law enforcement.
Get ready for a three-day celebration of our truly spectacular area of law. Viva Las Vegas!
