WASHINGTON, D.C. - McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce the inaugural issue of the Intellectual Property Department's IP Review. This is a biannual publication that will be published during the second and fourth calendar quarters and will provide commentary and analysis on intellectual property topics of current interest to professionals in business and law. Consistent with the firms international perspective and presence, and recognizing the important contributions of the lawyers resident in our four major EU venues, each issue will contain articles authored by intellectual property partners across our 12 international offices, as well as at least one eminent guest author.
"IP Review was created to bring our readers content that is thought provoking, insightful and above all, useful," commented Paul Devinsky, the publication's editor.
The inaugural IP Review is a "survey" issue, having articles spanning a wide range of topics relevant to in-house and outside counsel including "A Less Expensive Alternative to Litigation," Crafting Business Method Patents," "Brand Leveraging," "Forum Shopping in Europe," "Patenting Biotechnology Tools," and "IP Valuation in Transactions." Future issues will focus on a single "umbrella" intellectual property topic. In the fourth quarter, the IP Review will focus on various aspects of IP litigation, both in the U.S. and EU, a major area of core competency of the Firm's Intellectual Property department.
