Considerations in Corporate Structuring to Maximize Potential Recovery in Patent Cases

June 9, 2011

Intellectual property can be the lifeblood of a company. The company’s rights in its patents are critical to their enforcement. Tax, estate planning, and other considerations can lead to decisions on ownership of key patents that can limit recovery in an enforcement action if these consequences are not addressed. Worse yet, a predecessor could continue to own patent rights that should have been transferred in a merger or acquisition.

Susan G. L. Glovsky from Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds and Phil Green from Hoffman Alvary will present key strategies to resolve these and other problems:

  • Structure corporate relationships so that there is standing in Court
  • Understand key issues in patent ownership
  • Maintain records to establish lost profits
  • Understand factors for determining a reasonable royalty

Networking and breakfast begin at 7:30 am.   Program begins at 8:00 am.
