MCDERMOTT IP FOCUS (JAPAN) 2023 - Trademark Session

We are committed to providing insightful commentary on IP developments from around the world to our Japanese clients. In light of that effort, we are continuing our free monthly webinar series, McDermott IP Focus. 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!
