Secure your Startup: How to Acquire and Protect IP
In the early stages of a life sciences company, the lawyer plays an important role. This talk will outline the lawyer’s role, including the process for getting intellectual property into the company from a university, early issues that arise in company formation, interactions with the venture capital community, and some of the current legal issues that arise in the area of intellectual property for a young startup. These IP issues include questions around the ability to obtain diagnostic patents, and patents for natural products.
