Patents in Practice Panel


Location: Patrick F. McCartan Courtroom (View on

Just because something can be patented doesn’t mean it should be or that the invention will create value. In this panel, you will hear from four experts with practical patent experience: a patent prosecution attorney, an in-house patent counsel, a patent valuation expert, and a patent investor. Learn key techniques to successfully commercialize intellectual property, common pitfalls, and how to focus research towards a solid intellectual property position able to protect your market and defends against the claims of others.

Speakers include Jodi Clifford, the founding director of Notre Dame Law School’s Intellectual Property and Entrepreneurship Clinic, where she teaches and practices intellectual property law and Mike Noonan, president and chief IP counsel at Laird Technologies.
