Why does my non-IP Legal Team need to understand IP?
Lawyers who deal with contracts, litigation management, employment matters, mergers and everything in between all need to understand Intellectual Property. Why? Even if you outsource IP issues to your colleagues in the IP department or an outside firm, your non-IP legal team is on the front lines. Now that IP touches almost every part of businesses, they need to know enough about IP to see issues and opportunities. They need to know enough to know when to call in the IP experts. Patents, trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, defensive publications, designs, ownership, trolls, cyber, and dozens of other IP topics should be in the vocabulary of every member of your legal team. For this reason, we’ve developed a modularized, certificate-based IP program that’s fast, efficient, and convenient. Just what your legal team needs to know, nothing more.
