    CAR-T and other immunotherapies
    Iain Armstrong (Partner, HGF), Peter Scott (Editor-in-Chief, LSIPR) Recorded: Sep 3 2019 62 mins
    Immunotherapies, such as CAR-T cells, are a hugely promising therapeutic area, both in terms of clinical benefits and potential market size.
    While the treatments are complicated and expensive, they have proven remarkably effective in achieving positive outcomes in forms of cancer that are otherwise difficult to treat. As a result, their clinical use has recently been approved in both the US and Europe.
    The webinar will consider how commercial and technological developments have also impacted patent filings in this area. As the field becomes increasingly crowded, the likelihood of obtaining very broad patent protection decreases. However, the number of patent filings continues to grow dramatically.

    EDRM and Exterro Recorded: Aug 21 2019 33 mins
    In any matter, your potential e-discovery burden will greatly affect your case strategy. What if you could immediately—right after receiving a complaint—not only know how much likely data you would need to search, collect, process and review, but also have access to potentially responsive documents prior to collection? New e-discovery technology now empowers legal teams to do just that with in-place Early Case Assessment (ECA) capabilities.

    In our new technology webcast series, you will hear from technology experts along with in-house legal professionals like yourself on what e-discovery tools they are keeping an eye on and those that have made a lasting impact on their legal departments. This webcast will discuss how in-place ECA works, how other leading legal departments are using it, and why this technology will enable you to make big case strategic decisions earlier, saving you time and money.

    Why financial and professional services firms must get flexible working right
    Kirsty Leighton Recorded: Aug 21 2019 51 mins

  • Search Engines can do more to protect your intellectual property
    Search Engines can do more to protect your intellectual property
    Simon Baggs (Incopro), Dan Glover (McCarthy Tetrault), Helen Saunders (Incopro). Moderator Sanjana Kapila (Managing IP) Recorded: Jul 16 2019 58 mins
    Millions of locations online are dedicated to infringing intellectual property, including by offering copyright content without any licence and selling counterfeit products. It doesn’t stop there. Infringers will fake accounts to harvest data, run operations to trap people into paying for services that they never receive and give access to products that are illegal and often dangerous.

    All responsible Internet operators can play their part in stopping this proliferation of unlawful activity online. Hosts of websites act to take down an illegal website when notified. Social media platforms remove harmful posts when notified.

    But search engines will do very little, if anything. Indexing the world’s information has gone too far.

    So, what can be done to redress the balance?

    Join us as we analyse:
    • What is happening online, with practical case study examples on issues affecting the pharma, sports, consumer product, motoring and electrical sectors
    • The case law that shows how search engines can be required to do more
    • What next steps brands can take to get more cooperation from search engines

  • Developers are your greatest AppSec Resource – Here’s How to Activate Them
    Developers are your greatest AppSec Resource – Here’s How to Activate Them
    Amy DeMartine, Forrester Principal Analyst and Utsav Sanghani, Senior Product Manager, Synopsys Recorded: Jun 25 2019 50 mins
    Application vulnerabilities are a prime target for attackers, and the critical task of identifying and remediating these flaws before they’re exploited can be daunting, especially for organizations adopting DevOps and CI/CD practices. Security teams don’t have the time or resources to find and fix every vulnerability, and developers prefer to do what they do best – build and deploy features quickly. Fortunately, developers can be good at their jobs and be your most effective application security resources if you enable them with the low-friction tools and training at the precise time they need them.

    Join guest speaker Amy DeMartine, principal analyst at Forrester Research, and Utsav Sanghani, senior product manager at Synopsys, as they explore tools and techniques that can transform your developers into AppSec rock stars:
    - Rapid and continuous in-IDE security testing can help your developers find and fix issues before they ever get committed to your codebase.
    - Delivering short, contextualized AppSec training modules to developers in real time when they introduce vulnerabilities.
    - Most modern applications contain more open source code than proprietary code. Help your developers identify and avoid risky OSS components.

  • The 21st Century Lawyer: Adapting to a Tech-Driven Legal World
    The 21st Century Lawyer: Adapting to a Tech-Driven Legal World
    Kevin Miller, CEO, Legal Sifter Recorded: Jun 18 2019 46 mins
    The core job of attorneys is changing dramatically due to technology. The evolution of legal tech began with products that provided greater efficiencies in the management of routine tasks such as billing, research, and client communication. Today, it involves technologies such as advanced software and coding that have significantly enhanced legal capabilities. These include AI, which allows lawyers to quickly review large volumes of documents and digital material in multiple languages and dialects, resulting in enormous time and cost-savings.

    Today, advanced technologies are more embedded in the practice of law. As a result, law firms and corporate legal departments are faced with a need to change: embrace technology or risk losing a competitive advantage. Lawyers must be tech savvy unlike ever before.

    How can lawyers adapt to this new environment?
    What is the proper balance between manual processes and those that are automated by technology?
    What can law firms do culturally to ensure that lawyers can leverage technology to work more efficiently?

    This webinar will highlight how forces such as AI, predictive coding, and data analytics are reshaping the practice of law. It will focus on ways in which attorneys can be empowered to use technology to achieve greater outcomes. It will also highlight how and why it is critical for law firms to bring in the right people to ensure that advanced technologies can be optimally deployed to deliver legal services.

  • A Serial Seller’s Perspective on M&A Tech Due Diligence
    A Serial Seller’s Perspective on M&A Tech Due Diligence
    Irad Deutsch, CTO, Belong.Life and Phil Odence, GM, Synopsys Sep 26 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    On the buy side of a tech deal and want to better understand sellers? Selling a company and want to benefit from the experience of someone who’s been there (and been there and been there)?

    Building a successful software company takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. When a liquidity opportunity presents itself, sellers want to make sure they get the best deal they can, and quickly. During due diligence, the potential acquirer will delve into all facets of the technology. The more prepared the sell side is, the fewer issues will arise, and the smoother the transaction will be.

    What do buyers need, and what can prepared sellers do to streamline the process? Security, quality, and the intellectual property rights of the software are critical. Buyers, sellers, and their legal advisors need to be comfortable that no big technical issues will crop up post-close. Plus, they want to know that they have absolute and uncontested rights to the software assets—in particular, that there are no issues with open source licenses.

    Irad Deutsch, CTO of Belong.Life, has successfully made it through the process with two companies and has it down to a science for his third. Join Irad and Synopsys’ Phil Odence as they discuss the seller’s perspective, lessons learned on the seller’s side, and how to prepare for the M&A tech due diligence process.
