WASHINGTON, D.C. – Aaron S. Kamlay, a Butzel Long attorney and shareholder, will discuss “Building the Value of Your Company through IP” during a webinar presented by the Merage Institute on Monday, July 12, 2021.

The talk will first review the basics of intellectual property (IP), including patents, trademarks, and copyrights. The discussion then will primarily focus on techniques to capture and protect innovation, and for growing the value of your business through strategic use of IP. Examples and strategies apply to businesses of any age and size, from pre-first-round startups to established operating companies.

The practice supports Butzel’s clients through the full IP lifecycle, including high-stakes prosecution, litigation, and licensing of patents and trademarks, M&A diligence, patent monetization, and international trade issues.
