TEC Edmonton — Intellectual Property Considerations in Business Transactions

TEC Edmonton '€” Intellectual Property Considerations in Business Transactions

Whether you'€™re a technology-based business considering your exit plan, or a business that is growing through technology acquisitions, intellectual property (IP) is an important asset to consider. How do you make sure you’re protecting your crucial innovations and know how? What part does intellectual property play in business transactions? How do you know you'€™re not leaving crucial IP assets or money on the table?

In today'€™s technology-driven, highly competitive market, capturing, acquiring and leveraging your IP might make the difference between success and failure.

Field Law Lawyers and Patent Agents will be on hand to talk about such topics as:

How to review an IP portfolio, what to look for. Doing your homework: Are there issues that could keep you from patenting? Is there freedom to operate the technology? Can competitors come after you for infringement? Do you buy/sell or license IP? What factors make a difference in this decision? How do you leverage IP assets as either a buyer or a seller?

Want to learn more on this topic? Join Brian Futoransky, LL.B, and Shohini Bagchee, P.Eng., on February 26, 2014 for a complimentary lunch followed by a lively and informative session.
