Top 3 Strategies for World IP Protection

NEW YORK, NY, Aug 1, 2014 – (ACN Newswire) – Interviews with Jeff Hohenshell & Jeffrey Skelton, speakers at the marcus evans IP Law Summit Fall 2014, taking place in Palm Beach, Florida, September 14-16, 2014.

- Jeff Hohenshell, Senior Patent Counsel, Medtronic

We seek to reinvigorate our growth by focusing on emerging markets, therapy innovation, and creative business models. Budget constraints in mature economies, the paucity of new medical therapies coming to market, and core business challenges represent a significant test for Medtronic. These factors elevate global legal strategies to a greater priority level at Medtronic than ever before.

Emerging markets represent both an Intellectual Property (IP) challenge as well as an opportunity. US-centric thinking is to be avoided in emerging markets as IP systems in emerging markets vary greatly. Aspects of foreign IP systems are often dramatically different than the US system. US attorneys rely on their instincts at their own peril when addressing IP issues in emerging markets. Leveraging local expertise has never been so important.

Therapy innovation outside the US is also becoming increasingly important. A common path to market is to introduce an innovative product outside the US first and to thereafter bring it into the US. This means that legal issues associated with a product are initially tackled in IP systems that are quite different than the US system.

Medtronic’s Mission is to contribute to human welfare by application of biomedical engineering in the research, design, manufacture and sale of instruments that alleviate pain, restore health and extend life. There are no geographical limitations on this mission statement. Partnering with our physician customers and stakeholders is an important part of our chairman’s “Forward, Together” strategy for global development and innovation. IP agreement support is vital to making Medtronic the partner of choice in …read more

How to Maximize Legal Spend

NEW YORK, NY, Aug 1, 2014 – (ACN Newswire) – Interviews with William Crosby and Frederick Egler, speakers at the marcus evans Chief Litigation Officer Summit Fall 2014, taking place in Palm Beach, Florida, September 14-16, 2014.

- William Crosby, Vice President and Associate General Counsel, Interpublic Group

The most important thing a Chief Litigation Officer (CLO) can do to maximize legal spend is to really understand his or her department. That starts with being comfortable that the department is properly sized and identifying areas where it makes sense to hire internally rather than to use outside counsel. It also requires understanding how each lawyer utilizes his or her time to identify how best to improve efficiency. Greater efficiency can come from using vendors and non-lawyers for certain tasks, and from deciding what matters should be kept in-house and which ones are best left to outside counsel.

Since outside counsel costs are a major area of spend, it is important to develop partnerships with outside counsel where they understand your business and your need to contain costs. A great place to start is in developing retention and billing guidelines and by encouraging outside counsel to be creative in considering opportunities for cost savings, including with alternative fee arrangements.

It is also important to sit down with your main outside firms periodically to consider the relationship and improvements that can be made in the delivery of services.

- Frederick Egler, Chief Counsel, Litigation, The PNC Financial Services Group

Active management by in-house counsel is the key to effective litigation cost control. When the in-house lawyer selects counsel, makes a preliminary evaluation of the matter, and reaches agreement with outside counsel about strategy and handling, expense management must be a prime consideration.

While it is usually not practical for in-house counsel to …read more
