WilmerHale – Defense Tech Revolution: Financing Alternatives and Challenges

September 19, 2023
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The war in Ukraine and other developments have led to a boom in funding for commercial technology with defense applications, including artificial intelligence, quantum computing, robotics, drones and commercial space systems, among others. However, these defense tech companies will need to navigate a legal minefield unlike that found in any other line of business if they want to scale and become market leaders.

Join an interdisciplinary team of WilmerHale lawyers for a webinar series focused on the legal challenges faced by emerging defense tech companies.

In the first webinar, Defense Tech Revolution: Financing Alternatives and Challenges, Partners Jason Chipman, Stephanie Evans and Gary Schall, moderated by Partner Erik Swabb, will discuss opportunities and potential pitfalls for emerging companies seeking to fund their growth, including:

  • recent developments in financing for defense tech companies;
  • best practices for angel, venture and strategic financings; and
  • identifying and mitigating regulatory risks.

During the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to contribute questions online. CLE credit will be provided.

Future webinars will explore government contract disputes, compliance and investigations, and other issues.
