Wiggin and Dana's New York Office, 450 Lexington Avenue, 38th Floor, New York, NY 10017

Wiggin and Dana Partner Joseph Casino will be moderating the panel discussion, "What's New in Patent Monetization?" on Tuesday, September 28, 2016 at Wiggin and Dana's New York Office.

The program will cover "Monetization" of patents - i.e., making money from a patent or patent portfolio - has evolved from a model that relied solely on traditional direct licensing to include a diverse and exciting array of new modes that can be used to potentially profit from patent assets. Models for monetization include patent sales, creation of special purpose entities, joint licensing programs, licensing agents and a multitude of new structures.  Such new models have risks, financing needs, and have been the subject of controversy.

Mr. Casino will be joined by panelists Michael Gulliford, Managing Principal at Soryn Capital Partners, Orin Herskowitz, VP of Intellectual Property and Tech Transfer at Columbia University, Neill Taylor, General Counsel at Rock Rock Research, LLC and Sound View Innovations, LLC, and Phil Hartstein, President and CEO of Finjan Holdings, Inc.
