For many years, the firm of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP has realized that the use and exploitation of intellectual property has been an essential element of business for their clients in the entertainment, media, pharmaceutical and related sectors. Keeping in mind the increasing complexities of the law in this area and the growing demands on in-house counsel, Weil Gotshal has designed a series of intellectual property and media law luncheon seminars, led by Weil Gotshal partners or counsel, focusing on current developments and trends in the law.


The upcoming schedule includes:


•Tuesday, April 13, Libel/Privacy/Right of Publicity, with Weil Gotshal speakers R. Bruce Rich and Jonathan Bloom;


•Tuesday, May 11, IP Pitfalls in Corporate Transactions, with Weil Gotshal speakers Michael A. Epstein, Stephen D. Kahn and Jeffrey D. Osterman.


Both programs take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Weil Gotshal Conference Center, 767 Fifth Avenue, New York City.
