Held on September 17, 2018

Conflicts of interest is an issue that lawyers, patent agents and trademark agents regularly need to consider. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss what constitutes a conflict of interest when representing multiple clients (especially competitors) before CIPO. Would a competitor’s prior art being cited against each constitute a conflict? Or would that not rise to the level of “substantial risk” presently used by the Law Societies? Similarly, would there be a conflict for trademark agents when citing marks in a confusion objection or when performing a clearance search? The presenters will also discuss issues related to receiving and maintaining privileged communications.
