On Thursday, November 26, Smart & Biggar, in collaboration with the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Alberta, will host a virtual masterclass titled “Strategies for in-house counsel to manage intellectual property risk and opportunity”.

The panel will include insights from Smart & Biggar litigation partner Evan Nuttall, senior associate Laura Easton, patent partner Jonas Gifford and trademark counsel Kwan Loh. Through the authoritative lens of the speakers, participants will develop a clear understanding of how to identify, analyze and respond to risk factors and market opportunities related to patents, trademarks and enforcement and litigation in their organizations.
