BCLT/BTLJ Law & Tech Speaker Series | Haynes and Boone, “Tips and Tricks for your First Years as a Lawyer”
Thursday, January 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm
Tips and tricks in the first few years—how to hit the ground running, and stay ahead—in the practice of law. Discussion will cover some of the building blocks of entering big law, including building working relationships, efficiency, timekeeping and billing, and learning the rules of the road (from your administrators and paralegals). Particular emphasis will be spent highlighting practices that will help you succeed in intellectual property counseling and litigation.
Brian Kwok, partner at Haynes and Boone’s SF office, helps clients build, manage, and successfully monetize patent portfolios. Brian evaluates patent portfolios and negotiates deals ranging from a few hundred thousand to many billions of dollars. He recently represented an international technology company in a multi-billion dollar patent portfolio acquisition involving thousands of patents related to wireless telecommunications, cellular systems, and consumer electronics.
Jason Lao is a partner in the Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Group in the Orange County office. He focuses primarily on intellectual property litigation, with an emphasis on patents and licensing matters. He has represented clients across various industries, including biotech, semiconductor, wireless communications, smart meters, standards patents, trusted computing, digital rights management, satellite technology, virtual machines, and cybersecurity.
Jason Novak is a Partner in Haynes and Boone’s Precision Medicine and Digital Health Practice Group, where he focuses on advising entities, both large and small, on the various legal issues that can arise with emerging technologies in the healthcare and life sciences industries. Tech and Biotech are traditionally disparate technologies that, when blended together to form many of our most exciting new technologies, bring forth a combination of unique and interrelated legal issues.
