Intellectual Property

Presentation and Meetings

Gary Myles and Adda Gogoris from the intellectual property law firm Merchant & Gould will present valuable information on current intellectual property laws, meet one-on–one with you to discuss your IP concerns, and host a Happy Hour to enjoy, socialize and network.

Get information on:

  • The basic forms of intellectual property (patent, trademarks, copyright and trade secrets).
  • The appropriateness of and timeline for protecting each form of IP during the course of development of an early-stage company. The development of a sound patent protection strategy that is cost-effective yet achieves a company's business objectives.
  • How to position a company for success during the IP due diligence that accompanies an investment round. How does the issue of confidentiality, public disclosure, inventorship and ownership
  • relate to and often compromise the strength of a company’s patent portfolio.
  • What are reasonable measures to take to mitigate the risk of infringing third party patents? How do you properly assess the patentability of new inventions?
