Intellectual Property Disputes Committee

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 In Business of the Master Guide Series 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 William Honaker of Dickinson Wright PLLC.
