Protecting Intellectual Property

Investment Management Roundtable Discussion

Speakers: Gregory J. Nowak, Michael K. Jones, Peter T. Wakiyama and Lori E. Harrison


Podcast Categories: Financial, Funds, IP

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

For this discussion, Mr. Nowak is joined by Pepper attorneys 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.

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.

This podcast is a recording of their discussion.
