Please join us on December 3, 2014, for a presentation on the top ten issues you should be thinking about as you build your patent portfolio
 
Intellectual property is a crucial asset for any company.  Having a solid approach to securing patent exclusivity while navigating the patent landscape is a must in transforming an idea into a funded company. In this talk, we will discuss how you can maximize the value of your IP and mitigate potential IP risks.  Topics will include patent protection for platform technologies and product candidates, IP inventorship and ownership, freedom to operate and patent life cycle management among others.
 
This presentation will be provided by Bonnie Weiss McLeod of Cooley LLP.  Dr. McLeod has in-depth experience serving the life science industry in the preparation and prosecution of biotechnology and pharmaceutical patent applications and in IP due diligence analyses. Dr. McLeod specializes in counseling clients including universities and small to mid-size biotech companies with regard to developing and maintaining a patent strategy that is consistent with business goals.  She is a former patent examiner in the biotechnology group of the US Patent and Trademark Office and also an adjunct professor at Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law where she co-teaches a course on patent prosecution.
