Intellectual Property Management for In-House Counsel: Key Insights and Best Practices for Setting your Budget and Cutting Costs


Event Description

Intellectual Property management requires an organization’s in-house legal teams to make critical and often risky decisions about how best to use its IP assets to its advantage. An organization’s Soft IP and Hard IP portfolio, as well as its IP activities, must be aligned with and integrated into the organization’s overall business plan if its IP is to realize its full value. A properly managed IP portfolio can generate significant revenue for an organization by protecting its investments, defending it against competitors, and balancing its asset maintenance costs.


Given this crucial task, In-House Connect is thrilled to feature Dave Stevens, IP and IT Lawyer of the Stevens Law Group. Dave has helped clients save millions of dollars in IP costs, both in cost savings and process efficiencies, and regularly helps in-house legal teams review and rightsize their patent and IP portfolios.


Join us on Tuesday, October 24 at 9:00 am PT / 12:00 pm ET, for the next installment of our Intellectual Property Deep-Dives Series, as Dave will discuss:


  • How to holistically review your Soft IP and Hard IP portfolio and structure your IP budget to curb costs and optimize your IP assets
  • How to review and extract additional value from your existing patents
  • How and when to sell or abandon assets that are no longer valuable
  • New ways to reduce and tightly control costs of IP legal services and fixed fees, and
  • Provide working examples and structured cost management processes that you can put into action right away.
