Lunch & Learn | Merger, Collaboration Deal of IPO: Getting Your IP House in Order

In collaboration with


The driving force behind vast majority of mergers is the acquirer’s desire to obtain the target’s intellectual property assets. IP has come to dominate, both in volume and in value, not only merger transactions but also funding events, partnering deals and, increasingly, IPOs. Having a weak IP position can kill a deal, lower a valuation, and allow savvy competitors to steal market share. During this presentation you’ll learn what it means to have a “strong” or “weak” IP position, how to prepare for an IP due diligence and what investors want to know about your IP. This session will provide a perspective on how to increase the value of the company, evaluate where your IP stacks up and how to make a deal go more smoothly while keeping competition out.
