EVENT RECORDING: Strategies and Considerations for Protecting Your Medical Technology Start-Up's Innovations
November 29, 2016
Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds partnered with the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio), for lunch and learn on how medical technology companies are reaping rewards by protecting their core technologies/products through strategic procurement and use of intellectual property (IP) rights.
The business environment for startup companies is hazardous, particularly for those based on technical innovation. Small medical device companies are especially susceptible because of the multidisciplinary technical nature of the field and because the field is so competitive. While the success of medical technology companies is often contingent on intellectual property protection, that is only the start. The strategic leveraging of company assets, including intellectual property, also requires a thorough knowledge of the general legal environment and larger strategic options available to the company as it grows.
This is an interactive panel discussion with Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds intellectual property attorney Alexander Adam and guest speakers Dr. Jeff Chabot, Co-Founder and Member of the Board of Directors of Endocellutions, Inc., and David Feinberg of Feinberg Hanson LLP. Endocellutions, Inc. is a start-up medical device company developing innovative solutions to enable regenerative medicine. Feinberg Hanson LLP is a Boston law firm specializing in mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and private equity, and licensing and strategic partnerships.
The panel will discuss the importance of
- Identifying and protecting your company’s intellectual property assets
- Tactical management of intellectual property
- The role of intellectual property in the strategic management of your company, including mergers and acquisitions, obtaining venture capital and private equity investments, and licensing and strategic partnerships
- Critical legal focus points for entrepreneurs in building and protecting their businesses
