Warning! Antitrust Control In Acquisition Of Intangibles
Monday November 26th, 2018 @ 02:45 PM - 04:00 PM
Intellectual property rights have become a main objective and the driving force behind most mergers and acquisitions activities during the 21st century. Therefore, it is relevant for IP professionals to understand how IP rights are involved in such processes, how antitrust legislation is applied and what elements should be considered beyond the seemingly simple “transfer” of rights. Facing a sale and purchase of intangibles, under any modality, requires a thorough analysis. These processes require focus, knowledge, creativity and teamwork with professionals from different areas. The work of the lawyer involves from the authorization of rights to the structuring of the IP within the corporate structure and the fiscal planning until the preparation of strategies before any disinvestment imposed by the antitrust authority. This is a complex, challenging but interesting field. Join experienced professionals who have participated in important mergers and acquisitions, who will share with us the checklists, what should be done and what should not be done in these processes, particularly antitrust considerations in theory and practice.
