Consero’s IP Forum For Life Sciences to Focus on Protecting Global IP Portfolio and Industry Defense Strategies

Consero Group, an international leader in hosting high-level, invitation-only events for senior executives, announced today that it will hold its IP Forum For Life Sciences on December 4–6, 2016, at Rancho Bernardo in San Diego, CA. The upcoming forum will examine integrating IP into corporate strategy, protecting the IP portfolio, and navigating industry trade secrets.

“As the IP landscape within the life sciences continues to evolve, IP executives must pursue innovative paths both to protect their global IP portfolios and to manage costs,” said Paul Mandell, Founder and CEO of Consero. “This event will explore ways for chief IP counsel of the life sciences to remain abreast of worldwide IP developments, while maintaining an effective IP management strategy.”

Featured speakers include, among others: Bryan Zielinski of Pfizer, Inc., Bernie Greenspan of Prometheus Laboratories Inc., Paul Lee of DexCom, and Christine McCormack of Novartis.

Additional topics will include:

  • Beyond Myriad: Practical Tips In A Post-Myriad World: This panel will discuss how the Myriad precedent will continue to impact IP department strategies and the pharmaceuticals and biotechnology industries.
  • Protecting Your IP Portfolio: An Eye On The Bottom Line: Participants will evaluate the need for full protection of their global IP portfolios, benchmark how to communicate the impact of IP budget cuts, and maintain quality representation while mitigating cost variables.
  • Global IP Strategies: Preparation, Process and Practice: The discussion will tackle how IP executives can stay up to date on global IP developments, control outside legal costs, and grow in-house patent teams efficiently.
