Premier Cercle is teaming up with Managing IP and Institutional Investor Magazine for the IP Finance 2015 conference at The New York Palace on May 14.

This will be followed by sessions covering IP finance’s influence on innovation and commerce, IP securitization, patents’ evolving role in financial transactions, NPEs’ effect on innovation, the new business of IP litigation finance, and the impact of PTAB proceedings and the Alice decision.
