The State of the IP Industry: Wuamett Confirmed As Keynote Speaker, Joining Other Top Players at Elite IP Event

October 18, 2018

Jennifer Wuamett is now a confirmed keynote speaker at the 5th Annual IP Dealmakers Forum, an event for global leaders, movers, and shakers in the intellectual property industry. The event, which accepts just 200 pre-approved attendees each year, is regarded as the most elite in the industry.

IP Dealmakers Forum today revealed that it had secured its keynote speaker for the event’s fireside chat: , General Counsel & Corporate Secretary at NXP Semiconductors. Wuamatt is a leader in global IP strategy and monetization, leading some of the semiconductor industry's most significant M&A transactions in the past twenty years.


The highly-anticipated forum is scheduled to take place from November 6 to 8 at the Apella event space in New York City, with attendance capped at just two hundred. The event, one of the highlights in the IP world’s calendar, is renowned for being one in which senior industry executives and thought leaders share their experiences and strategies to move the industry forward.


The 2018 session agenda will see discussions on hot-button issues, including the impact of the U.S.-China trade war on international IP strategy and enforcement, patent licensing, standards in preparation for the mass introduction of 5G technology, and the use of disruptive technology in IP monetization efforts among others.


“This year’s IP Dealmakers Forum puts some of the world’s top minds in the same place, sharing their knowledge and experience with each other through panel discussions and one-to-one meetings. Since its inception five years ago, this event has become a must-attend for industry movers and shakers,” said Wendy Chou, Partner at IP Dealmakers Forum.


“2018 has been a year of changes in many industries, and the IP industry is no different. With the current pace of change in so many industries today, many new challenges – and opportunities – have come to light. Those attending don’t only enjoy a chance to get key insights from industry leaders – but also to ask them questions and discuss the future of IP.”


The event is sponsored by some of the , including: Brown Rudnick, Burford, Finjan, Mintz, Gowling WLG, Houlihan Lokey, IPVALUE, Robins Kaplan, Skadden, Ericsson, Tangible IP, Feinberg Day, Soryn IP, Brickell Key Asset Management (BKAM), and Richardson Oliver Insights.


“IP Dealmakers attracts the kind of people and discusses the kind of IP-related topics that really matter. I was impressed by the number of high caliber speakers and the topics covered,” said Gerhard Tschiedel, Senior Licensing Counsel at Siemens AG, talking about the 2017 forum.


“The presentations often stimulated lively, high-quality discussions among attendees, while the one-to-one meeting set up is an efficient way to meet new and existing contacts. This was all about real money – and real issues.”


Tschiedel was not the only attendee to  – and those who have already claimed their seat for the upcoming 5th Annual forum are already looking forward to what promises to be another powerful event.


For those interested in attending, time is running short; tickets for the forum are increasingly limited due to interest and the two hundred head restriction – and with just two weeks until the event starts, those who had not registered need to act now.
