Walsh Partner Hector D. Ruiz will be participating on a panel entitled “Protecting Your Brand: Strategies for Handling Social Media Abuse” at the 10th Annual Corporate Counsel Conference. To be held February 5th at Prudential headquarters in Newark, the conference is presented by The Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey (HBA-NJ) and Prudential.

Ruiz’s “Protecting Your Brand” panel will discuss current and pressing social media threats that put businesses at risk, how to address such threats and protect business, and recent developments in the law.

The conference will start with breakfast and will include three panels on engaging topics impacting corporate clients, in-house attorneys and the law, along with a networking lunch. In addition to Ruiz’s “Protecting Your Brand” panel, the other panels will address “A.I.: Changing the Landscape of the Board Room and Risk Management” and “Executive Leadership Roundtable: Approaches to Being a Change Agent in Your Company.” Participants will earn CLE credits.

“Intellectual property has been a key topic I’ve been involved in on behalf of my clients and I’m excited to be a part of the program,” Ruiz said. “I look forward to hearing additional points of view and sharing tactics.”

The panel will be moderated by Miguel A. Pozo of Cozen O’Connor and will offer additional diverse viewpoints from Alan Cardenas of Siemens; Fajd Majiduddin of TEVA Pharmaceuticals; and Dolly von Hollen of Prudential.

Ruiz concentrates his practice on federal and complex commercial litigation, and he represents clients as local counsel in significant intellectual property disputes, including patent claims, trademark, unfair competition and copyright matters.

The Corporate Counsel Conference provides substantive, continuing legal education programs to the legal and business communities at large and showcases talented professionals in the fields of law and business. Registration and more information about the conference can be found at
