Don Rupert Presents Webinar “Intellectual Property Risk Management”

September 22, 2009

This program is powered by and CLE accredited under the guidance of PLI

The risks inherent in any intellectual property matter are plentiful, and the rules and regulations that must be followed even more so. Stay abreast of issues relating to acceptable and ethical conduct in patent and trademark prosecution before the USPTO, as well as potential resultant malpractice charges, through the Marshall, Gerstein & Borun LLP presentation of Intellectual Property Risk Management.

Join Donald Rupert, Esq., Partner, Marshall Gerstein, as he discusses how the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Responsibility differ from USPTO rules and authority, and the Office of Enrollment and Discipline (OED) governance. This complimentary online CLE event program will examine conflicts of interest that may arise with existing and potential clients and malpractice issues as defined by the ABA Model Rules, including representation of others before the USPTO, OED compliance and disciplinary actions, and consistent types of conduct giving rise to malpractice complaints.

Marshall Gerstein is pleased to extend this hour-long presentation to all intellectual property attorneys, patent agents, and professionals who wish to remain up-to-date in this important area of their work. This CLE seminar has been produced in partnership with the Practising Law Institute and is complimentary to Marshall, Gerstein & Borun clients and colleagues.
