On 2 December, Brown Rudnick's London office will host a reception and discussion forum on the economic, legal, practical and ethical implications of disruptive innovation.

Disruptive innovation can create a new market or render obsolete a product, business or even an entire industry. In the connected world the speed of change has become breathtaking.

Can Intellectual Property incentivise disruptive innovation and simultaneously provide a defence for established technologies?

Does the increased threat of disruption represent a paradigm shift in the perception of risk in investment and product development?

Observations and dicussion led by:

  • Alexander Carter-Silk
    Head of European Intellectual Property, Brown Rudnick LLP.
  • Ben Hammersley
    Futurist, broadcaster, journalist international speaker consultant to governments and international organanisations. Innovator in Residence, Centre for Creative and Social studies Goldsmiths, University of London.
