Please join us for the return of Legal Finance topics to the NYIPLA virtual “stage.” This round table will discuss the use of third-party financing to unlock monetization potential from innovation. Our panel of industry leaders and practitioners will dive into recent trends in financing, including applications to corporate portfolio management and transactional matters, and use of legal finance as a business development tool for prospective clients. We’ll also devote some discussion to value creation in the Life Science patent litigation and transactional practices. A Q&A will follow. Join the conversation and virtually connect with your colleagues on May 5 as we dive deeper into this cutting-edge industry.
