Council of Chief Intellectual Property Attorneys

The environment in which companies protect, manage and monetize their intellectual property is rapidly evolving.  We are a forum where a select group of chief and senior intellectual property attorneys can openly discuss issues and share best practices.  The scope of our interest is broad, including: 

  • Best practices in the development and management of global organizations of intellectual property lawyers
  • Best practices in the creation, management and monetization of global portfolios
  • Risks and opportunities in the changing global environment
  • Recent developments in licensing, challenging, and defending intellectual property rights (standard essential patents and FRAND; non-practicing entities; WTO)

 The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
