As SSOs play an increasingly significant role for businesses and the government alike, understanding the benefits and the potential risks and costs, especially when it comes to terms and conditions regarding your proprietary IP rights, will be critical. This panel discussion will be led by Partner Roger Furey, together with Partner James Calder, Freddie Mac associate general counsel Robert Hebda, and Valley View Corporation consultant Dan Bart.

Program topics include:

  • Benefits, risks and costs of participation in SSOs
