Expert Session – AUCKLAND

How to Talk IP to your Patent Attorney
Thursday 25 Aug 4:30pm – 6:30pm

Narly Kalupahana has been an IP lawyer and patent attorney for over 20 years, and has worked as both a patent attorney and trademark lawyer in New Zealand and Asia for both big and small firms.

Learning how to properly instruct your Intellectual Property advisors, learning how to talk to them, and working out what information they *really* need are all absolutely critical to creating the best IP position possible for your business.

Simply getting IP registered isn’t good enough any more.

Narly will talk you through a few case studies showing how good IP advisor relationships have led to great results – and also how bad instructions can led to disastrous results.

Having the best lawyer or best patent attorney is pointless if you don’t know how to work with them properly.

Narly’s main focus these days is helping SMEs get a better understanding around IP issues, and convincing his wife Rachel that they should get a second Labrador.

WNT will be hosting networking and drinks with Narly after the session.  Come and join us!
