Intellectual Property and Competition Law Virtual Experience Programme
Portland, Maine, United States
Job type: fulltime
Job industry: Real Estate & Property
This programme will give you an insight into the type of work done by Ashurst's Intellectual Property and Competition Law teams. In this programme you will be introduced to the concepts of patents and copyright in the context of a commercial joint venture, before focusing on a specific issue that arises regularly in the real world: when partners work together to produce new technology, who owns the resulting intellectual property?
You will also be introduced to the Competition Law practice and the concept of an unannounced dawn raid by the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). In particular, it focuses on search warrants, shadowing CMA investigators during a raid and privilege claims available to the client in relation to the documents which are the subject of the CMA investigation.
