As life sciences and tech businesses come together to innovate in diverse fields such as biotech, robotics, pharma, digital health, wearables, medical devices, and AI/big data, among others, companies in these arenas will find themselves in a world of intellectual property that is increasingly accelerating in growth—one in which the IP laws relating to life science and technology begin to amalgamate. Paul Hastings’ IP Practice and Berkeley’s Center for Law & Technology, with their depth of experience in both worlds, invite you to a half-day conference on Thursday, January 16, 2020, at the Commonwealth Club in the Embarcadero district in San Francisco to help you feel more confident in this brave new world of business.

Reception immediately following the conference on the rooftop of the Commonwealth Club overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. We look forward to seeing you there.
