What makes emerging technology companies such risky business?


February's news that Facebook-owned Oculus had lost an IP-infringement case was quickly followed by a separate trade secrets lawsuit involving Uber-owned Otto.


With over $1bn in combined damages at stake, not to mention the cost in man-hours, these cases highlight the difficulties companies face when investing in emerging technologies – and how vulnerable start-ups are to IP theft.


Featuring experts from the legal and business worlds, our panel discuss what went wrong with these exciting acquisitions, the importance of trade secrets in the emerging technology industries, and how due diligence is sometimes not enough.


The discussion will be chaired by Thomas Phillips, Deputy Editor of Intellectual Property Magazine and a panel of leading industry experts: David Prange, (Robins Kaplan), Jay Silver (Womble Carlyle), and Jessica Mendelson, (Paul Hastings).
