In-House Counsel to Offer Insights on COVID-19 Challenges for IP Corporate Roundtable Webinar

July 7, 2020

The North Shore and West Suburban Corporate IP Roundtable programs will host a July 7 webinar focused on legal and business challenges stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sponsored by Banner Witcoff, the webinar will feature speakers George Jonas, managing counsel for global patents and technology law at BP; Nada Ardeleanu, assistant general counsel at Cardinal Health; and Kyle Kappes, general counsel at Epic Systems.

The trio of longtime in-house counsel will discuss their experiences and provide insights on how they are navigating the challenges and uncertainties, including crisis management, business continuity, budget pressure, and team morale, among others.

A Q&A session will follow the webinar, which will begin at 12 p.m. CT. The program is intended for in-house counsel who address IP issues and live in, or work in, Chicago’s suburbs. One MCLE credit is pending.

The North Shore Corporate IP Roundtable program was created to provide educational and networking opportunities for in-house corporate counsel. Due to its success, the firm-sponsored initiative was expanded to Chicago’s west suburbs.
