WIPR Patents Live Broadcast

October 2021

Event date: 26th October 2021

HGF’s Attorney-At-Law Olivia Petter will be speaking at the WIPR Patents Live Broadcast on Tuesday 26th October.

WIPR Patents Live is a programme that gives you access to unmissable live broadcasts, networking and collaboration in the IP community.

Olivia Petter will be speaking on ‘Disruptive Innovation and IP Protection’:

Disruptive innovations create new markets and replace well-established products and services. While the pandemic dramatically increased the adoption of disruptive technologies, new consumer habits and demands such as the wish for sustainable, climate-friendly, and personalised products and services—to name just a few—require brand-new solutions. We will cover:

  • The intersection between new technologies and IP: how IP rights help to foster innovation and to create value for the company
  • Why and how to choose an attorney, preparations for the protection of IP including financing
  • Building an asset: establish an IP strategy
  • Enforcement of IP rights, how to maintain protection and prevent economic harm.
