"Excellence in IP Strategy, Tactics & Operations"

IPforward 2017 is free for in-house IP counsel and IP professionals. There are 8 paid spaces for outside counsel. 

Our third annual IPforward conference will be held on April 13, 2017 at the Sofitel (Pullman) Hotel, Redwood City CA located across the lagoon from the Oracle campus.

If you are in-house IP counsel or an in-house IP management or operations professional, do not miss this unique opportunity to network with your peers, share best practices, benchmark your own operations against them and nurture your professional development.

The conference is free for in-house profesionals but space is very limited. IPforward is designed to have a personal, collegial atmosphere so only 120 spaces are available for attendees.

A small number of slots for outside counsel are available on a fee paying basis.

Voices from last year’s conference:

“…time was well spent with interesting topics to grab my attention all day.”
“The topics and speakers were great!”
“Better than any of the recent ‘big’ IP conferences I have attended.”
“Keep up with the practical and valuable content.”
“I thought it was fantastic”


“War stories are incredibly helpful. And the networking was excellent.”

This year’s special guest speaker: Lonnie G. Johnson. Renowned innovator, inventor and holder of over 100 patents, the vast majority of which are energy related, Dr. Johnson is perhaps best known as the inventor of the Super Soaker water gun.

A leading developer of the next two generations of battery technology, Ceramic Solid State Batteries and Lithium-Air batteries, he was awarded the “Breakthrough Award” from Popular Mechanics magazine for an invention that converts heat directly into electricity and is a TED alumni.

Who Can Attend

The conference is free for in-house IP counsel and IP profesionals but space is very limited. Only 120 spaces are available. A small number of slots for outside counsel or IP professionals are available on a fee paying basis.
