The American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) will be offering a webinar entitled "Protecting Privilege: Patent Agents within the Bar and Attorneys Beyond the Border" on November 12, 2015 from 12:30 - 2:00 pm (Eastern). Jeffrey I. D. Lewis of Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson, LLP; Angela Sebor of GlobeImmune, Inc.; and Anthony C. Tridico of Finnegan Henderson Farabow Garrett & Dunner, LLP will discuss attorney-client privilege as applied to domestic patent agents and non-lawyer patent attorneys outside the United States. The webinar will explore unsettled and often complex issues surrounding privilege and communications between U.S. patent agents or foreign patent practitioners and their clients, and address recent efforts by the USPTO and intellectual property organizations to engage stakeholders in a discussion of privilege for patent practitioners, as well as possible solutions for resolving current inconsistent treatment of privilege rules in the U.S. and abroad.
The registration fee for the program is $95 (AIPLA member rate) or $150 (non-member rate). Those interested in registering for the program, can do so here.
