This seminar will expose students to aspects of IP due diligence that arises when startup companies are seeking financing or are involved in merger or acquisition discussions with a third-party. Students will learn about how to ready and counsel a startup company for due diligence, draft and evaluate IP from a business perspective, evaluate third-party IP for freedom to operate, and about licensing strategies for third party IP. Students will also engage in a cursory review of other key areas of diligence. This Seminar will emphasize practical, real-world skill building and will be taught by practicing IP lawyers from Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. Other guest practitioners will also provide key perspectives.
