HGF Partner & Patent Attorney Jason Lessard will be delivering the session:

‘What is the Real Value of Protecting Your IP?’


Most business leaders know that intellectual property (IP) is important, but many don’t know the real value of protecting it. In this short talk, we will run through the value that IP protection can bring to your business, from the more tangible benefits like up to 15% tax savings to some of the more indirect benefits. We will tie it all together with some case studies, to give you a better understanding of how it works in practice. Whether you’re a sceptic with challenging questions, or just keen to learn more about how you can benefit, please join us for what we hope will be an engaging discussion.
