Considerations for Establishing an In-House Legal Team for Your TTO

By Jesse Schwartz
Published: March 14th, 2018

Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has invited Laura Fahey Fritts from Emory University to lead this one-hour, case-study style presentation. She will discuss how Emory came to the decision to handle almost all of its legal work in-house and what makes the group so beneficial to the TTO and researchers alike. Ms. Fritts will discuss how having an in-house patent counsel has improved:

  • The TTO’s ability to stay within its patent budget
  • Customer service to inventors
  • The relationship between license associates and patent prosecutors – leading to stronger claims

This webinar, scheduled for March 21, will address how the in-house patent group is run and managed, the limitations of in-house patent counsel’s work, and the key factors to consider before setting up your own internal patent group.
