Working Remotely: How to Use Technology Effectively While Respecting Confidentiality Obligations

Thursday, August 13, 2020, 1 pm - 2 pm ET

COVID-19 and physical distancing requires professionals to increase their ability to effectively work and communicate electronically with clients, counsel, and the courts, all while maintaining the confidentiality of clients' sensitive IP documents and meeting law society obligations for record-keeping.   

To assist IP practitioners in managing the transition, this webinar will cover: 

  • Maintaining confidentiality of client information and electronic document sharing  
  • Best practices for working with teams remotely 
  • Practical tips for optimal use of video conferencing
