Greenberg Traurig was proud to be a platinum sponsor of the 5th Annual Best Practices in IP Management Event which took place last month in Tel Aviv.

Barry Schindler, co-chair of GT’s Global Patent Prosecution Group and an active member of the firm’s Israel Practice, co-chaired the event. Schindler moderated the panel “THE BIG DEBATE: Patent or WHAT ELSE?” which kept the audience on its toes in an interactive session and ended with the audience awarding him a standing ovation.

Schindler also  hosted a “lunch & learn” on “Using the Dale Carnegie Approach (‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’) with Responses at the USPTO,” and a master class focused on Inter Partes Review Proceedings and Patent Eligibility: The Impact on U.S. Patent Prosecution.

Dr. Weisun Rao, an Intellectual Property & Technology shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, also participated in the event. Dr. Rao spoke on the “Methods of Attacking Patents at the Patent Offices: Comparing Procedures in Europe, U.S., and China” panel, the “Design Patents in the World of IP Globalization: A Comparison” panel, as well as on the “Trade Secrets by Jurisdiction – U.S. Europe and China” panel, together with Barry.

The event hosted some 200 leaders of Israeli and international IP communities.
