Eaton & Van Winkle Counsel Chris Colvin to Speak on Internet of Things Panel

April 12, 2016 from 6-8 pm at the New York County Lawyers Association

The Internet of Things (IoT) has grabbed many headlines lately as inventors create devices that can operate independently of human intervention.  Both fascinating and daunting, IoT presents ethical and regulatory challenges, as well as a great opportunity for lawyers to refocus their law practices to capitalize on IoT innovation.

Chris Colvin, counsel in Eaton & Van Winkle’s IP and Litigation Sections, and the co-chair of the firm’s Cybersecurity Law & Data Privacy Group, will be joining a distinguished panel of IoT experts, including the Senior Director of Consumer Affairs for Microsoft Corporation and the General Counsel of Quirky, Inc.

Mr. Colvin and his co-panelists will describe the IoT landscape, discuss how IoT will impact lawyers and the law, and address questions of privacy, control, developer integrity and corporate responsibility raised by IoT inventions.

Seats are limited, so those interested in attending should purchase tickets at the earliest opportunity.

Chris Colvin has more than twenty years of experience handling all types of intellectual property and commercial litigation matters, including numerous patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and false advertising disputes, complex licensing transactions and major patent and trademark prosecution matters.  

Prior to joining Eaton & Van Winkle, Mr. Colvin was a partner in the boutique Colvin IP law firm and a partner in the Am Law 100 firm of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel.
