    Theranos, Fraud, and Closely Held Corporations with Douglas Moll

    Theranos, Fraud, and Closely Held Corporations with Douglas Moll

    Emphasis Added is a podcast by the Houston Law Review. Check out this episode in video on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDK03FEAP2lTdm4syp02ChA

    On this month's episode of Emphasis Added, I spoke with University of Houston Law Center Professor Douglas Moll about fraud and closely held corporations in the context of Theranos, a biotech company that was once valued at $10 billion, and is now worth nothing. Professor Moll teaches multiple business law courses at the University of Houston Law Center and has written multiple articles and books on civil fraud and closely held corporations. We discussed Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes's conduct as portrayed by the ABC News podcast and Hulu Series, "The Dropout," and analyzed different instances of Theranos's fraud exploring questions like when  Silicon Valley's culture of "fake it till you make it" really becomes fraudulent and how investors in a private closely held corporation are disadvantaged when things go wrong.

    On this month's episode of Emphasis Added, I spoke with Milbank's Firmwide Head of IP,  David Gindler, and Senior Milbank IP Associate, Jasper Tran, about patent waiver of COVID vaccines and the complexities of being an IP attorney. David's background includes successfully representing clients in trials with verdicts in the hundreds of millions of dollars, negotiating complex IP license agreements, and frequently speaking on hot topics in IP law, mostly notably on topics in life-sciences and pharmaceuticals. Jasper's background includes a practice focusing on complex patent and trade secret litigation in federal courts, conducting due diligence on IP/IT agreement in multi-billion-dollar acquisitions, and authoring numerous scholarly articles on Intellectual Property for journals from law school’s such as Yale and Northwestern amongst others (link to his scholarship below). We discussed the many intricacies to researching, patenting, and manufacturing vaccines and other pharmaceuticals, why the patent waiver debate might be misguided, and the potential enforcement issues that may need to be addressed when the pandemic ends.
