Determine what steps you may need to take to protect your startup's intellectual property. This workshop will cover the different methods for protecting your IP (patents, copyrights, etc.) and provide specific guidance on how to go about putting IP protections in place.

This session will be led by Michael Kasdan (NYU Law '01), intellectual property attorney at Wiggin and Dana LLP.

About the speaker: Michael focuses on all areas of intellectual property law, providing his clients with full service IP expertise that ranges from patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret litigation to IP-related transactions – including licensing and monetization – to helping companies to protect and reap maximum value from their own innovations and brands.

As a Partner in the firm’s Intellectual Property Practice Group, Michael develops effective offensive and defensive patent strategies for organizations of all sizes. He has asserted and defended IP rights in federal courts, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the International Trade Commission, and private arbitrations and mediations. As an advisor, he has worked with both established companies and startups to obtain, value, license, and develop patent, trademark and trade secret portfolios.

Trained in electrical engineering and bringing a business background as a technology consultant, Michael is known for his ability to quickly learn new technologies and distill complicated topics. He works with a broad range of technologies, including consumer electronics, wireless and mobile devices, batteries, mechanical devices, healthcare and medical devices, computer architecture, software, and networks, including open-source software, semiconductor chips, and internet and e-commerce platforms and apps.
