Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 05, 2016
Susanne Hollinger, head of patents at The Coca-Cola Co., will be the keynote speaker for Georgia State University College of Law’s 12th annual IP Hot Topics Luncheon at noon, Wednesday, May 11 at the Knowles Conference Center, 85 Park Place.
“Susanne represents a modern IP (intellectual property) strategy professional focused on global business issues at the intersection of business, law and technology,” said Scott Frank (J.D./M.B.A. ’94), president of AT&T Intellectual Property and chair of the Georgia State Law IP Advisory Board. “As a former outside counsel, technology transfer professional and doctorate researcher, Susanne brings a point of view that can truly inform and inspire others seeking to better assess the winds of change in IP strategy.”
Hollinger will build on her experiences and perspective in intellectual property, patents and business growth and address hot topic issues in IP strategy such as cultivating and invalidating patents, handling licensing and litigation, going global and innovating with the Internet of Things (the network of physical objects with internet connectivity, and the communication that occurs between them). She will suggest what IP practitioners can do to stay on top of growing options for their business stakeholders.
The event will be preceded by the third annual IP Think Tank, an invitation-only gathering of executives, attorneys, corporate counsel, consultants, academics and facilitators. This year’s IP Think Tank will focus on the “Future Vision of IP Management” to anticipate and articulate key drivers and influences that may shape business IP strategies going forward.
Event sponsors include Anaqua and Lee & Hayes, Cantor Colburn, LES Atlanta Chapter and Hartman & Citrin & Lyco Works. Co-sponsors include the State Bar of Georgia IP Section, Atlanta Bar Association IP Section, Georgia Institute of Technology Ernest Scheller Jr. College of Business and Georgia State’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business.
