YETI Hosts WITCON Delivered in Austin, Texas

September 28, 2023

The second WITCON Delivered event will be hosted by YETI at their corporate office in Austin, Texas on Thursday, September 28. Attendees are also able to join the program virtually.

The seminar will feature Banner Witcoff attorneys Michael Krashin and Brad Van Pelt in a discussion on design patents and how they can strengthen intellectual property portfolios. The duo will address the business considerations in obtaining design patents, strategies for success in developing an IP portfolio that includes design patents, and how design patents can be used effectively domestically and internationally to protect a business, including from competitors, imitators, and counterfeiters.
