MCLE To Discuss Buying & Selling IP

Monday, February 1, 2010 - 01:00

Recent financial turmoil has led to the business failures of many companies that own intellectual property assets. These assets may be useful in other hands, and sellers might be able to recoup some value while buyers may be able to capitalize on opportunities. To help lawyers recognize opportunities for clients, the MCLE will present Buying & Selling Intellectual Property Assets in a Down Economy.

The seminar will be held at MCLE, the Upper Level Seminar Room, Boston on Wednesday, February 10, from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Buying and selling IP assets can present unique issues that multiply when the seller may not have fully exploited the materials or has suffered financial problems. A panel will discuss potential issues you and your client need to consider, including methods for valuing intellectual property; techniques for risk allocation and mechanics in transfer documents; the effect of intellectual property valuations on accounting and tax compliance; and accounting and tax issues in acquiring and holding intellectual property acquired from a predecessor business.

The faculty includes Alan C. Cody and Nathan P. Levin, both of Duff & Phelps in Boston, and Edmund J. Walsh, Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks, PC.
