What does the future hold for intellectual property practice in the next, 5, 10, to 15 years? And importantly, how should you prepare for this future?

Join SFIPLA and Dennemeyer, a full-spectrum IP service group, in a discussion of the critical trends in the intellectual property arena, including the use of blockchain to protect IP; the evolution of artificial intelligence as patent prosecutor and as inventors; the management of IP assets in a digitalized world; and how to make your company and your client “future-proof.” Even though we don’t have a crystal ball, we have studies, experience, and a history of innovation that provides a foundation to watch industry trends and predict the future.

Dennemeyer will draw on multiple sources, including its 2017 comprehensive study on the future of intellectual property, with a goal of providing a high-level view of major trends that will impact IP practice over the next 15 years, predictions on global initiatives, and suggestions on how to prepare for this brave new world.


Leon Steinberg is the Managing Director North America for the Dennemeyer Group. Leon has held a variety of other positions including Chairman of the Black Hills Group, CEO of Foundation IP, CEO of Intellevate, CEO of Meritas, President of Law and Politics Magazine (Super Lawyer).

Leon is a lawyer by training and practiced for 15 years before entering the business world.
