Party Disputes: Litigation and Case Law Update for Licensing Lawyers

McDonald Hopkins' Stephen Rosenfeld will discuss "Party Disputes: Litigation and Case Law Update for Licensing Lawyers" as part of PLI's 2-day Advanced Licensing Agreements 2021 program.

Intellectual property licensing continues to grow increasingly complex with the legal, regulatory and technical landscape constantly evolving. Building and maintaining a successful and effective practice requires that practitioners stay sharp and current in a wide variety of key areas. Whether you are using licensing to develop technology, expand or create market opportunities, develop technology, or generate returns from existing assets, managing licensing transactions requires a broad and deep toolkit.
