Networking Opportunity

Before CLE, 11:30 am 

Arts District Mansion

Prior to the CLE, we are encouraging members to come a little early (starting at 11:30 am) to have networking time over lunch before the CLE presentation.

We’ve found that once the presentation starts, there is little time to socialize.

So, if you’ve missed the ability to catch up with your IP colleagues (or to meet new ones), please plan to join us at the Arts District Mansion

at 11:30 am.

“From Start-Up to Scale-Up to IPO—Patent Prosecution and
Portfolio Management for Growth-Oriented High-Tech Companies”

Speaker:  Michael K. Henry, Ph.D., Henry Patent Law Firm PLLC

Working with a rapidly growing company presents a unique set of IP challenges, such as helping the client develop a patent portfolio.  To do this, procedures and expertise with the patent process are needed inside the company, and outside counsel are often relied upon to provide training, support and strategic advice.  In this presentation, the speaker will review his experiences of working with venture-backed tech startups, including experiences with building a patent portfolio that can support a successful acquisition or IPO.
