As a member of the trademark committee at the NY City Bar Association I am working with a group of fantastic colleagues to put together and host a program on International Trademark Issues. Here are details about the event:
Title: Brands Abroad: Int’l Trademark Issues Facing In-House Counsel & Those Who Advise Them
Date & Time: October, 16th 6-8pm (FREE program)
Location: 42 West 44th Street, NYC
Program Description: This panel will discuss strategies and suggestions that can aid in-house legal staff, and their outside counsel, in navigating the perilous waters that they may encounter when managing cross-border brands. When brands are used in multiple countries and continents, the challenges can include developing cost-effective searching, registration, protection, budgetary realities, local policing philosophies, managing business expectations, and institutional challenges.
Speakers: DOREEN L. COSTA, Head of Trademark, Copyright and Advertising Group, Baker Botts, LLP; JOHN M. BERGIN, Chief Trademark & Copyright Counsel, Avon Products, Inc.; CLARK W. LACKERT, Dickstein Shapiro, LLP
Sponsored by: Committee on Trademarks & Unfair Competition, at the NY City Bar Association
You are invited to attend. I look forward to connecting with you there.
[ps you can wish me Happy Birthday when you see me at the program… because it’s the day before my birthday.]
