We are pleased to announce that the Intellectual Property Law Section, in conjunction with NYC Business Solutions and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, will be hosting a Pro Bono Clinic on Intellectual Property Issues for Startups, to be held at Cardozo Law School. This clinic will explain intellectual property issues and strategies that are important for startups, and will pair the attendees with an attorney for a no-fee 30 minute consultation. We anticipate a large turnout so we encourage you to attend.
The clinic will take place between 6:30 and 10:00 pm, and will be organized as follows:
- 6:00 to 6:30 -- sign in
- 6:30 to 7:30 -- presentation on Intellectual Property Issues for Startups
- 7:30 to 10:00 -- 30 minute consultations
Pre-registration by the attendees is required so that we can properly match the attendees to the attorneys. Once we have paired up the attorneys and attendees, we will provide notice to the attorney so that he or she can run conflicts, if necessary, prior to the clinic. If you would like to volunteer for one or more of the 30 minute time slots, please email Paula Estrada de Martin at PEstradadeMartin@bakerdonelson.com and/or Debra Resnick at firstname.lastname@example.org and specify the following information:
- Phone number
- Email address
- Preferred time slot(s)
- Area(s) of expertise
- Whether you have worked with startup companies
- Whether you are an IP Law Section member.
If you do not have pro bono liability insurance, you may be covered by a policy maintained by the Intellectual Property Law and the Entertainment and Sports Law Sections. Please also indicate if you need such coverage.
We look forward to hearing from you.
