Kickoff Event: Legal Foundations Series with Thompson Coburn

January 21, 2016 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm

Estimated reading time: 1 minute(s)

This kickoff event will start a group of presentations designed to help entrepreneurs and start-ups better understand the legal issues that are key to successfully launching, sustaining, and growing a new venture.

The Thompson Coburn Legal Foundations Series launches with “IP 101: The Basics of Intellectual Property Protection.” Should you patent your technology? How should you protect the name of your business or product? Can I protect my software? The complimentary presentation, delivered by Thompson Coburn Intellectual Property Partner, Jason Schwent, will address these questions and more. You’ll leave with an understanding of the different types of Intellectual Property available under the law—from patent, trademarks, and copyrights to trade dress and design patents—and how they work together to protect your company and your assets.

After the presentation, there will be a reception to follow.
