Holmander\, Adler Pollock & \n Sheehan                    \n                    Craig M. Scott\, Hinckley Allen\n \n In the current legal IP landscape\, it is imperative for lawyers to consider \n and advise on a coordinated strategy of IP tools to protect a client’s \n brand or innovation assets.  Too often\, new lawyers only understand the \n piecemeal application of trademarks\, copyright\, and patents as legal \n protections\, but they do not understand the bigger practical picture of a \n client’s business goals\, the depth of available IP protection options\, or \n the strategic thinking involved in developing a client’s IP portfolio over \n the life of the client’s business.  With this understanding\, lawyers are \n better able to deliver more impactful\, complete\, and cost-effective business \n solutions for a client.  Come learn from this exceptional panel of \n experienced IP lawyers as they model this higher-level strategic thinking \n that connects the IP dots to the client’s needs\, from the early stages of a \n brand or innovation and through the critical IP touchpoints as the client \n grows and through a potential exit situation.   \n \n Panel followed by light refreshments in the Bay View Room.\n \n RSVP | [1]\n \n  \n \n  \n \n  \n \n \n [1] END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT UID:calendar.12451.field_date.0.4 SUMMARY:New York City Info Session for Prospective Students DTSTAMP:20171215T195547Z DTSTART:20170309T223000Z DTEND:20170309T233000Z URL;VALUE=URI: LOCATION:The Ainsworth Midtown\, 45 E 33rd Street\, New York\, NY 10016 DESCRIPTION:We invite you to our New York City Info Session.  Come learn about our \n Affordable Excellence Initiative [1] and Clinical Guarantee [2].  You will \n have the opportunity to meet with an admissions representative and mingle \n with Dean Michael J.

The FCPA’s anti-bribery provisions make \n it a crime for any U.S. individual\, business entity or employee of a U.S. \n business entity to offer or provide\, directly or through a third party\, \n anything of value to a foreign government official with corrupt intent to \n influence an award or continuation of business or to gain an unfair \n advantage.  For today’s global businesses\, bribes are pervasive\, and the \n chances of encountering corruption are high.  The fines imposed by the DOJ \n and SEC for violations can be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.   As \n a result\, the demand for lawyers as compliance specialists is surging to help \n companies build programs and navigate these laws.\n \n Come hear from FCPA Compliance lawyers at IGT\, the lottery and gaming \n powerhouse\, and Textron\, the aircraft and defense titan\, about what the FCPA \n means to their businesses and how they work to control the risks of these \n international activities.  Panel followed by light refreshments in the Bay \n View Room.\n \n RSVP | [1]\n \n  \n \n  \n \n \n [1] END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
