Startups with patents are 84 percent more likely to be acquired, but only the most successful entrepreneurs fully grasp how essential intellectual property is to their product strategy. Likewise, investors must fully understand a company's IP position when evaluating a potential investment.

Jim Singer, chair of Fox Rothschild’s Intellectual Property Department, will lead a Q&A session that will follow the formal program, exploring what startups and investors need to know about the various types of patents, the patent process, licensing, trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, NDAs, patent litigation and practical strategies to help achieve successful outcomes.
