Director Monica Riva Talley will be speaking at the 2021 Trademark Boot Camp hosted by the American Intellectual Property Association. Her session, titled “Developing a Filing Strategy,” will occur on August 30, 2021 from 1:45 – 2:45 p.m. EDT.

The Eleventh Annual Trademark Boot Camp is a comprehensive online CLE program designed for new practitioners and others interested in learning the basics of trademark practice. Topics include; trademark clearance, pre-filing considerations, trademark prosecution, international trademark filing strategies, disputes, including trademark investigations, cease-and-desist campaigns, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) practice, and an introduction to trademark litigation.

Participants will participate in two hands-on workshops taught by experienced trademark practitioners: (1) ordering and analyzing search reports and preparing clearance opinions and (2) responding effectively to Office Actions. Representatives from the United States Patent and Trademark Office will serve as instructors for the Office Action response workshop, and another workshop will feature a panel of TTAB Judges and/or Interlocutory Attorneys.
