TechGC: DeputyGC Virtual Private Dinner + CLE - Fostering Innovation, Competitiveness, and Economic Growth: A Conversation with Wayne Stacy, Regional Director of the Silicon Valley USPTO

Online Webinar

One of the most important functions of your legal department is to protect and defend the intellectual property of your company. Doing that effectively requires a collaborative effort with the USPTO, whose mission is, among other things, to ensure a timely and thorough analysis of your patent and trademark applications. In this fireside chat, Baker Botts partners, Hogene Choi and Sarah Guske, and the Silicon Valley Regional Director of the USPTO, Wayne Stacy, will talk through recent changes at the agency to reduce the time and cost to obtain patents, and ways to think about how to safeguard the quality of granted patents both at home and abroad. Deputy General Counsel of Twitter, Stephanie King, is the host for this discussion.
