In July 2017, new rules for registration of technology transfer agreements entered in force. The procedures adopted by the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BPTO) for decades have now changed, and professionals are required to update their practices.
On August 1 and 2, Murta Goyanes Advogados’ partner, Luiza Duarte, will be in Ouro Preto (State of Minas Gerais) to teach Educanpei’s course about IP Agreements. With the concept of continuing education, Educanpei offers training routes and opportunities of networking and collective learning in several cities of Brazil.
During the 16-hour program, Luiza will present the particularities of contractual arrangements involving industrial property rights and technology transfer, as well as discuss business strategies, such as trademarks, patents and industrial designs licenses and assignments, protection of trade secrets, non-disclosure agreements, franchises, the new registration proceeding before the BPTO and the Innovation Law.
Specialized in intellectual property for almost 15 years, Luiza had her work recognized in several editions of the international guide WTR 1000. Licensed to practice law in New York and with a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in Intellectual Property Law from the George Washington University (Washington, DC), Luiza has extensive experience in assisting domestic and foreign clients.
