Overview (Program Summary)

Intellectual Property (IP) assets play an increasingly significant role in the value of corporate transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, licenses, and distribution agreements. IP due diligence is an exercise to define, examine, and analyze an IP portfolio of a target company (including patents, trademarks, copyrights, domain names, and trade secrets) and can occur in anticipation of a transaction or in the context of one. Whether your company is the buyer or a target in a transaction involving IP, the due diligence should examine the scope, strength, and enforceability of the IP in addition to the ownership rights surrounding the IP and its commercial potential.

In this webinar, we will discuss key considerations before conducting IP due diligence, the essential elements of IP due diligence (with an emphasis on trademark and copyright diligence), and common pitfalls.  Examining these components will help in-house counsel derive maximum value from IP in corporate transactions, identify risks and potential deal-breakers, and satisfy the business objectives of a deal. We will provide you with the necessary tools to identify and remediate problems encountered during IP due diligence, negotiate deal terms to reflect information learned during IP due diligence, and develop IP portfolio management strategies post-closing.
