No matter the practice area, your clients have intellectual property, and you need to know how to help them protect it. Intellectual Property (IP) means creations of the mind: inventions; literary, artistic, and musical works; names, logos and designs used in commerce; and proprietary know-how maintained as trade secrets. IP-intensive companies drive 37% of Louisiana private sector jobs, 48% of the state’s output, and 66% of its exports, according to a 2012 study by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
This seminar will benefit practitioners in all areas of the law by giving them the information they need so that they, and their clients, won’t be left behind in the new, information-driven economy.
