Key Intellectual Property Protections for Government Contractors

August 05, 2020 12:00 pm CST Webinar 2 of 5

This webinar is part of the 2020 Government Contracts Webinar Series.

For participants in the federal government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, understanding intellectual property (IP) laws is essential in order for companies to protect their ideas, products, and product names in today’s knowledge economy.

We invite you to join Holly Clarke, Craig Cox, Stephen Withee, and Daniel Murray on August 5, 2020, for a webinar focused on providing you with the information necessary to protect your intellectual property rights during the various phases of SBIR/STTR grants. Additionally, we will provide strategies to protect the developed IP in the commercial world through copyrights, trade secrets, and the patent process, as well as information about other government research opportunities through the Defense Department’s Other Transaction programs.

Frost Brown Todd 2020 Government Contracts Webinar Series

Breaking Through: How Small Businesses Can Accelerate Growth Through Federal Grants and Programs

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive, with grant recipients earning up to $150,000 in initial seed funding and up to $1 million in subsequent stages. Though the SBIR and STTR programs differ in key respects, both offer equity-free funding to encourage small businesses to ramp up their research and development (R&D) with the potential for commercialization.

Frost Brown Todd is invested in helping small businesses learn about the federal regulations and requirements that govern participation in the SBIR/STTR programs, as well as how small businesses can position themselves for successful commercialization. Starting July 22, 2020, we are hosting a series of weekly webinars focused on the opportunities and critical issues impacting small businesses, particularly in the government contracting space.

Our attorneys will discuss avenues for funding innovative projects, the regulatory overlay for government contractors, and strategies for protecting and commercializing your intellectual property assets.

During this five-part webinar series, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to prepare for the CMMC and other regulations governing cyber and data security.
  • Hear from leading advisors in the private equity and mergers and acquisitions marketplace about practical and proven commercialization strategies.
  • Learn about government contract opportunities for small businesses, including steps to secure significant R&D funding through the SBIR/STTR programs.
  • Explore how to prevent and prepare for government enforcement actions.
  • Find out about best practices in human resources and OFCCP compliance.
  • Understand important intellectual property concepts and what your intellectual property rights are when contracting with the government.
