Kidon IP War Stories: David Cohen & Otto Licks

My next talk is with Otto Licks.  I first met Otto while at Vringo when I was developing a global monetization campaign in which he and the firm played a key role.

Otto Licks is one of the founding partners at Licks Attorneys, one of, if not the leading Brazilian law firms with a global reach.  Otto has a long and storied career, as an engineer, public servant, and now a top-notch litigator.  Most importantly, Otto is a straight shooter who gets stuff done quickly AND is a great conversationalist and fun to be around.

Our discussion provides a brief overview of why Brazil should be an important part of IP strategy; some hot topics and trends in Brazilian IP and litigation; the amazing steps Otto and his firm took to cope with Covid-19; and a sprinkling of reminisces.
