Going Global: What You Need to Know to Be a Truly International Trademark Lawyer

In this interactive panel discussion, trademark attorneys compare and contrast trademark use, protection, registration, and enforcement in the European Union versus the United States. The panel will discuss topics that affect the international trademark lawyer’s practice, such as common law use versus first to file, how to develop a global portfolio for your clients, and other practical and legal issues that implicate the differences or similarities among the EU and U.S. trademark laws.
