The 30th Annual Lavender Law Conference and Career Fair will be held in New York from August 8-10, 2018. We are very pleased to announce that, once again, Winterfeldt IP Group Founder and Principal Brian Winterfeldt will be chairing an Intellectual Property Institute during Lavender Law, which is the largest LGBT legal conference in the United States. The IP Institute is a half-day mini-conference that will be held on Friday, August 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We hope you will join us for the Institute, which will feature a keynote address from Mary Denison, the Commissioner for Trademarks of the USPTO, as well as panels on cutting-edge brand protection, patent, and Internet policy issues. Speakers include senior in-house personnel from 3M, Facebook, Intel, Mars, Microsoft, WarnerMedia, and top law firms. CLE credit will be available for participants.
