Business Leadership Roundtable Luncheon: "Patent Law for Startups"
Brian Coleman and Peter Dehlinger, Perkins Coie


Join us for a luncheon with Brian Coleman and Peter Dehlinger, both attorneys and partners at Perkins Coie specializing in patent law.

Intellectual Property (IP) means protecting the most valuable assets of your start-up company. But where to begin? Today's high tech entreprenuer must know the legal basics, recognize the pros and cons, make an educated decision in selecting an IP attorney, and not miss any bar dates! Fortunately, we are going to squeeze the critical information onto one sheet of paper (not legal size!), cover some recent patent law trends of interest to start-ups, and answer your questions in this roundtable luncheon.
