"IP Assets on the Offensive: Arming Your IP for Corporate Strategic Battles," Speaker, 2016 ACC Annual Meeting, October 2016.
Business leaders in the C-suite are awakening to the fact that aligning business strategy with intellectual property assets is critical to success. IP asset alignment is central to any strategic plan or initiative. In this session, faculty will role-play typical scenarios in which four strategic initiatives are issued from the C-suite (i.e.., competing in a technologically hot area, recovery from genericide with a withering brand, entry into a heavily patented market, treading through copyright issues for a content critical business model). Faculty will discuss how IP assets are part of the issue at hand, what legal options are available in order to implement the initiatives, and how the IP assets need to be positioned to ensure success.

Association of Corporate Counsel
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
