CPM Webinar Series: Creating and Running an Ethical IP Law Firm: A Survival Guide For Patent & Trademark Practitioners - Part 1
October 6, 2022 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
Introduction and Overview of Legal and Ethical Duties IP Practitioners Owe to Clients, the Public, and the USPTO
This first part of AIPLA’s six-part webinar series lays the foundation for creating and running an ethical IP firm. During this inaugural session, explore who you may be working with, employing, and partnering with when designing and running an IP law firm and how each of these roles and positions can impact your practice and practice areas.
In addition, you will hear about the legal and ethical duties IP practitioners and their law firms owe to their clients, the USPTO (and other tribunals), adverse parties, third parties, and members of the public and how these duties impact your practice and potential for disciplinary action. Practitioner-client relationship formation and termination will also be discussed.
Subsequent parts in this six-part webinar series will build from these overarching principles. Monthly deep dives into specific practice tips will be provided outside of this webinar series through the support of a variety of AIPLA committees – stay tuned for dates, times, and topics.
Presented by: Michael McCabe, McCabe Ali LLC, and Jan Jacobowitz, Legal Ethics Consulting
