    Event Synopsis:
    M&A transactions often require legal and financial disclosures to ensure security and avoid liabilities that may arise during the purchase. One of the most important considerations a buyer should take into account when it comes to such transactions is intellectual property (IP). Because the company being purchased already holds existing IP rights prior to its transfer, the purchaser's duty is to meticulously negotiate and investigate IP protection to avoid loopholes. Strategically, a purchaser must investigate any issue in every aspect of the ownership transfer for the transaction to be carried out successfully and free of legal liability.
    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help buyers understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of IP provisions in M&A transactions and will offer best practices to successfully negotiate such rights.

    Key topics include:
    -IP & M&A Transactions – When One Meets the Other
    -IP Provision and Considerations
    -Significant M&A Transactions in 2017
    -Where Problems Arise
    -Tips and Strategies to Successfully Negotiate IP
