Leveraging and Protecting your IP Assets to Thrive in a Dynamic Corporate Environment
While companies were once measured on the goods they manufactured or traded, today they compete in a marketplace of ideas and innovation. Effectively managing IP has become commercially critical, and fundamental to business strategy. Innovation is a key ingredient to this value potential for IP Leaders and by working with the organization to cultivate a culture of deep R&D and innovation, long term competitive advantage and sustained profitability is inevitable.
Global mergers and acquisitions reached a record high in the first quarter of 2018. U.S. tax reform and faster economic growth in Europe unleashed many companies' deal making instincts. As the value of IP continues to grow, so too does the value of an in-house lawyer who proactively and effectively manages IP.

How are these uncertainties affecting their day-to-day planning as well as their strategic IP Management objectives in the short and long term?
