CHICAGO—Intellectual property law firm Brinks Gilson & Lione—one of the nation’s largest IP boutiques—is presenting a webinar, “2016 IP Developments,” to address issues likely to be of high relevance this year to in-house and outside IP counsel, on January 28, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. CST.

The webinar will be moderated by firm president James R. Sobieraj, who will be joined by attorneys Mark H. Remus, Amy H. Fix, William H. Frankel, and Laura Beth Miller. All will share insights on topics including the impact of post-grant proceedings on Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) litigation strategies, the implications of recent decisions with respect to fair use and copyright protection and enforcement in the digital age, and the impact of administrative proceedings on IP protection and enforcement in light of U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in B&B Hardware, Inc. v.
