The IP Operations Landscape

Start Date:10/31/2019

Start Time:1:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


Among the most vital examples of the application of business discipline and strong process to the legal function is the burgeoning field of IP operations.  The capacity to carefully manage and extract maximum value from intellectual property assets can be the difference between a thriving company and a fading also-ran.  In this free webinar, you will:

  • hear industry thought leaders elucidate the four pillars of IP Operations—people, processes, technology, data—that define the field
  • benchmark your organization through an exploration of the IP Ops “maturity spectrum.”
  • learn firsthand from an IP Ops leader at one of the U.S.’s largest privately-held corporations about their implementation of a successful IP Ops function

The program will also feature analysis of the first-ever demographic study of the professionals developing the IP Ops field. Our webinar’s moderator, leading industry consultant Brad Blickstein, will be joined by  Annya Dushine of CPA Global and Amy Gagich of Koch Industries.
