Lawyers who practice in the field of intellectual property law must navigate through a maze of ethics rules relating to potential conflicts of interest. This presentation, taught by Michael E. McCabe, Jr., and experienced practitioner in the fields of Intellectual Property and Ethics, will focus on helping the IP practitioner and law firm manager to spot conflict issues that are unique to the practice of patent and trademark law, such as identifying who is the “real” client, determining when a client becomes a former client, and determining whether a client representation presents a “subject matter” conflict of interest. The program will also address ways to mitigate the risks associated with such conflicts of interest, including the current viability of advanced conflict waivers.
Made some interesting points that applied to the practice of law in general.
A very good overview of a very broad and difficult topic
Very precise and informative presentation
Extremely knowledgeable presenter
Good presentation, thanks!
This course was one of the most pertinent and relevant courses I have attended in a long time. The content was very useful.
I have recommended your classes to a number of other lawyers. Most of them have told me that they have really benefited from the courses. I have become impressed with the company's ability to develop well planned and executed courses. I appreciate they keeping track of my courses. I can go to their web page anytime and get access to the materials. Often I print the materials because they are so well prepared. Thank you. Sue Ella Kobak
Excellent. Applicable to all, not just IP lawyers.
Very good. IP is not my area, but the discussion was still clear and interesting.
The thought-provoking anecdotes are proof why anecdotal evidence is sometimes the most salient.
The slide on what to consider when entering into a representation agreement was especially helpful.
this is the way CLE should be done...
The presenter was outstanding. Excellent materials
