Investment Management Roundtable: January 2020

Presented by West LegalEdcenter

Join Gregory J. Nowak, a partner and practice leader for hedge funds in Pepper Hamilton’s Funds Services Practice Group, for a series of candid, interactive discussions on what is going on now in the investment management world, including issues that affect private funds and their managers.

This month, Mr. Nowak will be joined by Pepper attorneys Joseph C. Guagliardo, Lori E. Harrison, Michael K. Jones and Peter T. Wakiyama for a thought-provoking discussion about protecting intellectual property — the “secret sauce” of your asset management enterprise. Their discussion will cover:

Key topics include:

  • A review of recent rulings concerning patents, trademarks and copyrights and how they affect the asset management, lending and payments industries
  • A review of basic M&A/deal principles when IP is involved
  • How to protect your SEC track record from “poachers,” or conversely, how to make it portable.

CLE credit available.
