Pepper Hamilton LLP recently issued the following announcement.
Join your host, Pepper partner Gregory J. Nowak, for a series of candid, interactive discussions on what is going on now in the investment management world, including issues that affect private funds and their managers.
This month, Mr. Nowak will be joined by Pepper attorneys Joseph C. Guagliardo, Lori E. Harrison, Michael K. Jones and Peter T. Wakiyama for a thought-provoking discussion about protecting intellectual property — the “secret sauce” of your asset management enterprise. Their discussion will cover:
a review of recent rulings concerning patents, trademarks and copyrights and how they affect the asset management, lending and payments industries
a review of basic M&A/deal principles when IP is involved
how to protect your SEC track record from “poachers,” or conversely, how to make it portable
If you've attended previous Pepper events, make sure to spread the word to your colleagues. We encourage you to bring a friend from the industry!
