"The Freedom to Operate course provides a fantastic and engaging overview of the variety of issues faced when implementing IP rights in the life sciences industry. Ian's effective communication facilitated many informative discussions focusing on real life examples - a very worthwhile course for anyone experienced in the sector or not."

This course is brilliant for those who are new to IP and also those who are more experienced in this sector.

Ian's delivery, presentation and materials really make you understand complex issues surrounding IP in an interesting and detailed way which allows you to gain a wealth of knowledge

I would highly recommend this to colleagues and friends who would like to learn more in this area, one of the best courses I have attended this year

The Freedom to Operate for the Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical Industries course enabled me to really understand the area. The structure of the course allowed me to gain background and general information along with a more detailed perspective. Ian’s presentations throughout the day were informative, interactive and engaging and this helped me to get the most out of the course

An excellent course giving a detailed overview of the various types of intellectual property rights, as well as freedom to operate issues particularly faced by players in the life sciences industry. The use of worked examples was helpful, and Ian was on hand to answer any questions I had

Course was well-structured and clear.  Its focus on “real-world” examples really helped demystify some of the complexities around this area of law

I thoroughly enjoyed the course which was really well thought out

A very informative and well structured training course. Highly recommended

The Freedom to Operate course was excellent, I’d recommend it for anyone working in technology transfer. As well as covering the fundamentals succinctly we also had the opportunity to discuss current cases such as the CRISPR IP landscape

I highly recommend the Assimilate IP courses as an enjoyable way to learn a lot of useful information and practical advice about intellectual property management and freedom to operate in a short amount of time and for very reasonable cost

The course provided lots of useful advice on best practice for carrying out FTO studies from an impartial point of view (i.e. not promoting a specific patent-searching platform).  Detailed notes were given which I have referred to many times since

I attended the 'Freedom to Operate for the Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical Industries' course whilst working in the Legal and Compliance team at GE Healthcare. It was an interactive course with a variety of different elements, including lectures and group discussions. The course greatly improved my IP knowledge, which I was subsequently able to apply to my day-to-day role at GE Healthcare

Ian is very approachable and a great source of information about IP management.  In addition to effectively communicating the core material Ian facilitated discussions around topics of particular interest to the group.  The course was also a useful opportunity to meet and share experiences with others working in IP management

The course was very interesting and well structured. I was really impressed with the outstanding knowledge and expertise demonstrated by each speaker. At the end of the course I was provided with session materials to take home, which proved to be an extremely useful future reference guide. I'd highly recommend Assimilate IP to anyone who's looking to gain a better understanding of Intellectual Property law and practice
