Intellectual Property Disputes Committee

The Intellectual Property Disputes Committee has been retired.  Stay tuned for updates.

Many businesses depend on intellectual property as their lifeblood.  Some IP disputes are amenable to non-judicial resolution, potentially saving costly commercial disruption.  The Intellectual Property Disputes Committee works to discern where and how ADR is best deployed in relationships concerning patent, trademark, copyright and know-how.  

Past works of the IP Committee include Patent Mediation: Better Solutions for Business of the Master Guide Series, our Patent Arbitration and Mediation Model Clauses, and The CPR Patent Mediation Task Force’s Effective Practices Protocol and Why Patent Mediation Works, as well as Patent & Trade Secret Arbitration Rules

The Chair of the Intellectual Property Disputes Committee is Michael Timmons of Johnson & Johnson.
