The nightly victims on shark tank usually offer only a vague response when asked to "explain why the business is worth a million dollars."The sharks then gang up on the entrepreneurs and beat them down--because they know the secrets of product valuation. On July 28, learn how to defend the value of your intellectual property and to convince buyers and investors just what your invention is worth. Whether licensing your innovation, selling a patent, or raising money to bring a product to market, you will be in a strong negotiating position if you can determine the actual dollar value of what you are bringing to the deal, and to document its worth in a convincing manner.

About The Speaker

Charlie O'Brien is the Chair of Cantor Colburn’s intellectual property (IP) Transactional Group. He concentrates his transactional practice on the exploitation, transfer and licensing of technology, and IP rights through various IP related transactions. Charlie has extensive experience in all aspects of complex IP licensing, including the preparation and negotiation of patent license agreements, software license agreements, joint development agreements, trademark license agreements, material transfer agreements, joint marketing and promotion agreements, and the like. Charlie is also a member of Cantor Colburn’s Litigation Department and has extensive experience in litigating IP related actions, including patent infringement actions and contractual disputes regarding IP rights. These skills provide him with useful and sometimes critical insight for his clients into both the foreseeable and more importantly unforeseeable issues and conflicts that can arise in IP transactional matters. This allows him to address these potential issues and conflicts early on at the transactional stage.
