“I had the pleasure to participate in two kick-off in-person sessions of the Lebanon Innovate Capacity Building Programme focused on a group of 20 Lebanese Lawyers. Honestly, I can’t remember meeting a group of such motivated, communicative, and friendly legal professionals as in Beirut last week. My understanding is that the eagerness of this group to learn about IP protection and technology transfer has to do with the current admirable momentum of Lebanese Universities and the enormous trust and hope placed in them by the Lebanese society at large. It is also an honor to stand alongside SADER & Associates, a law firm with an admirable history who have been spearheading the topic of IPR in Lebanon and in the broader region for the past decades.”
