Brand Protection & Anti-Counterfeit Summit 2017 (updated August 21, 2017)
November 14 - November 15
Legal IQ presents Brand Protection & Anti-Counterfeit Summit 2017 scheduled for November 14-15, 2017, London, United Kingdom
Calling all Brand Protection and Anti-Counterfeit Specialists!
Your company has invested thousands, perhaps millions of euros and immeasurable hours into building brand equity. And with one infringement, your brand, your revenue, your reputation and your rights can be put at risk within minutes.
Bringing together the most innovative brands and enforcement agencies in Europe, the 12th Annual Brand Protection & Anti-Counterfeiting Summit is your chance to develop solutions, strategies and programmes to minimise infringements against your brand, and ensure that you are protected against an ever-quicker-evolving threat.
A recent report conducted by Lecorpio showed that more than a third of companies have increased trademark policing budgets for 2017. With recent in-house trends suggesting that lawyers are prioritising other concerns such as reducing legal spend, compliance, and ethics management, it might be somewhat unexpected that legal departments are adding to their trademark policing budgets. It is never easy to ask company executives for more resources; but where those costs can be justified, there’s less resistance.
This year the Brand Protection & Anti-Counterfeit Summit will feature 18 different presentations focusing on: the collaboration between brands and other entities to fight fakes, creative solutions to combatting counterfeiting, emerging technologies in the context of brand protection & anti-counterfeit, and organisational factors to improve the conditions in the fight against counterfeit. Participants include:
- Delphine Bordier – Director Senior Corporate Counsel, Getty Images
- Alessandro Farris – Head of IP Enforcement,Luxottica
- Mark Bearfoot – Brand Protection Manager EMEA, Harley-Davidson Motor Company
- Stella Padovani – Worldwide Intellectual Property & Brand Protection Manager, Moncler Group
- Paul Dicken – Brand Protection Manager, Liverpool Football Club
