Legal Clinic: Intellectual Property Issues for Startups/Small Businesses

In the early stages of a new business, intellectual property can be critical for protecting the company’s core ideas, generating revenue, and attracting investors. At this legal clinic, you will receive pro-bono legal advice from volunteer attorneys with the New York State Bar Association. Attorneys will be available to answer questions relating to intellectual property strategy, licensing, monetization, patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret and litigation.

Pre-registration is required so that we can properly match attorneys and attendees. Assistance will be limited to that which can be given during the clinic session and will be delivered to those that pre-register on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please register at

Presented by NYC Digital, NYC Department of Small Business Services, and the New York State Bar Association.  Any questions, please contact [masked].

    It's great to see the city doing this, really encouraging. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, so I've changed my RSVP; despite the preregistration, hopefully someone can get off the waitlist. Thanks!

    Is there any way to tell if you've already registered? I didn't get a notification for my first registration (although it turns out someone had already gotten it); I reregistered to make sure I was covered. I did get a notification for the second registration.

    If I'm the only one who had this issue, my bad, but just thought I'd mention it! Thanks again for setting up the event!
