Join Us for November 7 MedTech Webinar
When medical device companies conduct fundraising or plan an exit strategy, there are important IP issues to be considered. In the first installment of Schwegman’s Emerging Tech webinar series, three distinguished speakers from different backgrounds will address these matters. An entrepreneur, an investor and an attorney will discuss, how do companies decide what IP to pursue? And how important is IP? The webinar, entitled, “IP for Medical Device Companies: What to Consider During Fundraising … Or Exit,” takes place on Thursday, November 7 at 12 p.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Central. Schwegman is pleased to welcome guest panelists Paul Grand, Ron Berenson and Cindy Lynch. The discussion will be moderated by Schwegman principals Piers Blewett and Doug Portnow.
