About the Council

If you lead your company’s intellectual property function, you are likely responsible for protecting, managing, and monetizing your company’s most valuable intangible assets in a rapidly changing global environment. Legal and policy backdrops to IP management continue to morph globally, as does the way companies view and use the IP function itself. The Council discusses challenges across multiple disciplines to leverage your IP knowledge in a business-forward manner and keep you up to speed on emerging opportunities.


  • Development and management of global organizations
  • Best practices in the creation, management, and monetization of global IP portfolios
  • Legal and non-legal risks, along with business opportunities in the changing global environment that impact IP value.
  • Recent developments in licensing, challenging, and defending IP rights
