“Patent Masters is the way more seminars should be; relatively small, interactive, with a good variety of participants having different viewpoints and backgrounds, and a core faculty of clear experts in the field.”
— Scott Pierce, Principal, Hamilton, Brook, Smith & Reynolds (July 2018).
In-depth and interactive.
What you really need to know about the Courts, the Hill and the PTO.
Sometimes it is important to know what is going on behind the scenes. This was the genesis of the Patent Masters™ symposium.
While there are any number of conferences one can attend, there are few (if any) that offer an intimate setting where interested, thoughtful professionals can engage industry thought leaders in wide-ranging discussions on a variety of issues. The goal of the two-day event is to inform participants about what is truly happening behind the scenes. The Patent Masters™ symposium was created to fill this need.
The Patent Masters™ symposium is a high-level, interactive, limited enrollment seminar for attorneys and executives interested in an in-depth exploration of topical legal issues facing those that prosecute, litigate, license and monetize patents. Discussions will be led by top thought leaders in the industry and will cover what is happening in the Courts, on Capitol Hill, and at the USPTO.
Sessions are designed to be highly interactive and offer ample time to speak and interact with faculty and other participants. Enrollment is limited to encourage dialogue and to ensure a meaningful opportunity for participation.
Continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon refreshments will be provided each day. A wine reception followed by dinner will be scheduled for attendees on the first night of the Symposium.
While intended to be much more than a typical CLE, the Patent Masters™ Symposium was approved for 12 credits of CLE in Virginia for the 2018 reporting year, and a CLE application will be submitted for 2019. Virginia has reciprocity with many other states, including TX, NY, FL and CA.
“It was all awesome!”
— Bob Ryan, Holland & Hart LLP (July 2018).
“Educational and impactful closed-door confidential discussions with thoughtful movers and shakers.”
— Eric Gould Bear, President & CEO, MONKEYmedia, Inc. (July 2018).
“Many times at events you will see people on smartphones or laptops, not really paying attention. I was pleased to see no laptops or smartphones out, with everyone thoroughly engaged throughout. I think that speaks volumes about the quality of the program.” — Gene Quinn, President & CEO, IPWatchdog, Inc. (July 2018).
