Alicia Griffin Mills participated as a panelist at the 2016 Midwest IP Institute, hosted by Minnesota CLE. Her panel, “Playing Offense and Defense: A Playbook for Patent Issues During Your Product’s Development and Launch,” was part of the In-House Counsel track.

Panel Summary

Patents can provide opportunities, but also can present challenges and uncertainty, for companies that are developing products. How do you manage the infringement risks associated with your product? How do you ensure your product is adequately covered by your own patent applications, so that competitors are reluctant to copy? Tools and strategies for managing these risks and opportunities will be discussed by our panel of experienced in-house and outside attorneys, with a focus on practical solutions and processes that are useful for lawyers and non-lawyers alike.
