“Back to Basics: Best Practices for Your IP Setting.” 

  • Claims & Concerns – In this section, we will cover some trends and circumstances that are driving current IP claims & expectations for process and procedure (reporting potential/actual claims, timing, etc.).  Following each claim scenario, we will cover the lessons learned and best practices for being proactive to avoid the claim in the first place.

  • The Ethics of Errors - It’s not easy being an IP practitioner. We face rigid deadlines, packed calendars, and long hours. Clients are often stubborn and unforgiving, demanding 110% of our attention and expecting five-star work at 2-star prices. As practitioners are only human, even the most skilled and seasoned will inevitably, to some degree, make a mistake. A mistake may damage your case, and might also threaten your relationship with a client or even your position at a firm. But failing respond appropriately to a mistake will jeopardize your license and your career. During this section, we will consider a practitioner’s duties related to error disclosure, what exactly those duties require, and why it’s important to take these duties seriously.
  • Top Ten Tips for Responding to a Disciplinary Grievance – It is not the type of letter that any practitioner would welcome.  However, statistics show that practitioners can expect to receive at least one grievance letter or RFI from the State Bar or USPTO OED, respectively, if they practice long enough. While most of these grievances are dismissed without investigation, or after investigation with a determination that discipline is not warranted, it is critical to know how to respond properly.  During this section, we will cover some best practices on what to say and how to say it when responding to the regulatory authority. 

AIPLA has teamed with Jamison IP & Specialty Services and CNA to provide its members with an opportunity to save on professional and cyber liability insurance!
