LebNet in San Diego October 19th, 2017
The law firm of Knobbe Martens was the host for a LebNet event in San Diego focused on the importance of Intellectual Property, on October 19th.
Fram Akiki opened the evening and introduced Mark Abumeri, Partner, Knobbe Martens IP Law. Mark, who also teaches patent law, presented an overview of the importance and various methods organizations can use to protect their intellectual property. Eric Furman, a fellow partner in Knobbe Martens, spoke about the special considerations of IP protection in the biotechnology field. Both Mark and Eric fielded a number of questions from the highly engaged group. George Akiki, Founder and President of LebNet, flew out from Silicon Valley to attend the event. Attendees enjoyed some great networking time before and after the presentations.
This was the second LebNet event held this year in San Diego and we look forward to more events in 2018! Thank you to everyone who came out and made this a success!
