Foley is proudly sponsoring the 2010 IP Counsel Café in Palo Alto, California on April 14-15. This forum addresses the balance needed in today's recovering economy and in turn aims toward establishing strategic alliances and facilitating interactive discussions among venture capitalists, start-ups, chief IP counsel, senior counsel, IP litigators, and patent prosecutors on the future of IP protections and entrepreneurship.
