Presented by Barnes and Thornburg

Just because something can be patented doesn’t mean it should be or that the invention will create value. In this panel, you will hear from four experts with practical patent experience: a patent prosecution attorney, an in-house patent counsel, a patent valuation expert, and a patent investor. Learn key techniques to successfully commercialize intellectual property, common pitfalls, and how to focus research towards a solid intellectual property position able to protect your market and defends against the claims of others.
