_______________

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 will take place in a round-table setting and 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.

Perhaps most importantly, our conversations will be off the record.  We will follow Chatham House Rules. This means that anyone who attends is free to use information from the discussion, but may not reveal the source of the information. This is intended to facilitate the free and frank exchange of ideas between speakers and participants while maintaining confidentiality.

Continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon refreshments will be provided each day.  A wine reception followed by dinner are scheduled for attendees on Tuesday, October 23, 2018.

While much more than a CLE, the Patent Masters™ symposium has been approved for 12 credits of CLE in Virginia. Virginia has reciprocity with many other states, including TX, NY, FL and CA.

“It was all awesome!”

“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).
