Trademark attorney Steve Baird will moderate a panel, “Trademark Survival Guidance for In-House Patent & IP Counsel,” at the 2018 Midwest IP Institute in Minneapolis on Friday, September 28, 2018.

This session is specifically designed for in-house patent and intellectual property counsel wanting to be more comfortable and effective handling or supervising trademark matters. Over the last quarter century intellectual property expertise has become more and more subspecialized. Yet, not all companies have dedicated in-house trademark counsel, so in-house patent counsel is often expected to have at least a working knowledge of the ever-changing trademark landscape. Learn and apply valuable trademark knowledge to your day-to-day work, and take away the top six trademark tips that will improve and strengthen your trademark advice to business leaders and marketing professionals.

Panelists include:

  • Steve Baird, Chair Intellectual Property, Winthrop & Weinstine (Moderator and Speaker)
  • Paul Sherburne, Associate General Counsel and Director of Intellectual Property, Graco Inc.
  • Greg Smock, Patent Counsel, Teleflex Incorporated
  • Kirsten Stone, Chief Patent Counsel & Intellectual Property Director, H.B. Fuller Company
