In the third event of our IP AT THE CUTTING EDGE series, Christopher J. Palermo (, a US patent attorney from leading Silicon Valley based law firm Hickman Palermo (, will be discussing issues relating to protecting your intellectual property in the US. Chris acts for the crème de la crème of Silicon Valley tech companies from established giants such as Apple and Cisco to rising stars like Dropbox and Netflix.

In this talk Chris will lead you through developing a product-aligned IP plan, selecting and protecting your innovations in the US—both with a view to patents as the new corporate asset—and evaluating and resolving patent risks. Following the talk Chris will then be answering questions from the audience.

There is already lots of interest in Chris’s visit to the UK and we are therefore expecting a high demand for Chris’s time in the Q&A session. As such, we are asking for questions to be submitted in advance. Tweet your question to @KilburnStrode ( with the hashtag #QuizPalermo or email it to Kirstie McClumpha.

In the IP AT THE CUTTING EDGE series Kilburn & Strode LLP ( serve up some of the world’s leaders in IP and innovation to show how intellectual property rights can help companies at the cutting edge of technology, all washed down with cocktails from one of London’s finest mixologists.
