Course Description

With intellectual property increasingly becoming the impetus for deals, it is strategically important to understand what intellectual property is being transferred and the risks involved. This program, led by attorney Keren Livneh, will break intellectual property down into its component parts, discuss the issues inherent in transacting with each such part, review transaction structures for transferring and commercializing intellectual property, discuss the issues that arise from such structures, and help navigate those issues with practical drafting considerations and best practices.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the various types of intellectual property
  2. Identify the issues involved in transacting with the various types of intellectual property
  3. Review possible structures for transferring intellectual property
  4. Appreciate the risks and rewards in those structures
  5. Address the risks in the transaction documents
