Holland & Hart is proud to be a Presenting Sponsor at the 19th Annual Rocky Mountain Intellectual Property & Technology Law Institute - 2021: an IP Odyssey, happening virtually on Thursday, June 3rd through Friday, June 4th. The Institute is one of the U.S.’ premier intellectual property continuing legal education programs and is attended by hundreds of IP professionals from across the globe. We are pleased to once again be an annual participant, albeit from a distance.

This year's Institute will offer four tracks focusing on Patents and Patent Litigation; Trademarks and Copyrights; Licensing; and Transactions and E-Commerce. From social media privacy, censorship, and publishing standards to the popularization of telemedicine, the conference will delve into the current trends and hot topics within IP.
