Celebrating Entrepreneurs Week, Farrer & Co have kindly offered to visit Makerversity for a discussion around IP Issues. Owen O’Rorke is a rights specialist with expertise in data protection and intellectual property, and considerable experience in both contentious and advisory contexts. There will be a half an hour chat covering the following:
a. Discussion of a variety of IP issues, including factors that entrepreneurs can get wrong – balancing the commercial and legal factors;
b. Demystifying personal data – why it is important as a marketing tool and an asset as a core part of a business’ value; and
c. How to treat personal data right and the reputational risks of getting it wrong.
Farrer & Co’s team will be joining, including Partner and Deputy Head of Entrepreneurs, Tom Bruce, and Emily Part, an Associate from their Employment Team. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A, where the team will help with your queries.
13:00 — 14:00
