McDermott IP Focus | US Trade Secret Protection and Enforcement


McDermott is committed to providing insightful commentary on intellectual property (IP) developments from around the world to our Japanese clients. In light of that effort, we are pleased to announce that our free webinar series, McDermott IP Focus, will continue in 2024. During these sessions, we will explore global developments in IP including disputes, transactions, and procurement, with a significant focus on what Japanese companies need to know during this ever-changing business landscape.

Over the course of the series, we will feature a variety of speakers from McDermott’s offices around the world. These sessions are presented in English and a Japanese summary is provided orally. We hope you can join us!
