From IP-driven corporate transactions to the rise (and recent fall) of patent monetization entities, attorneys are increasingly called upon to offer not only legal but practical, real-world business advice. So, how does IP fit in the corporate world?
This class will examine not only how to create a strategy around IP, but also how IP is perceived, misperceived, used, misused, understood and misunderstood. It will look at how the best-laid plans to monetize IP have succeeded and failed, and occasionally, how some just get lucky. We will look at the business of IP in litigation, transactional, and policy contexts.
This course is taught by Jeffrey E. Ostrow. Jeff chairs the global IP practice for Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP. He is both a seasoned IP transactional lawyer as well as a litigator who has tried IP cases for myriad of companies across technologies. Jeff has been named as one of the "Daily Journal’s" Top 100 IP Lawyers in California, and has accumulated many other accolades.
