Insights: Events The Biggest Surprises in Cross-Border Patent and IP Transactions

Tech Transfer Central

Wednesday, April 19, 2023

The increasingly global nature of technology transfer is making it much more likely that you have, or will, encounter a growing number of “cross-border” IP transactions. These transactions are very different than the domestic transactions TTOs most commonly handle, introducing additional complexity and in many cases unfamiliarity with country- or region-specific patent and IP rules and regulations. These differences can alter the economics of the deal you sign, and understanding the key provisions that must be carefully handled in cross-border agreements will help you confidently draft and negotiate these transactions.

We’ve put together a top-notch panel to teach you how to do just that. Please join Dr. Joseph R. Snyder and Dr. Siegmar Pohl, partners with Kilpatrick Townsend and Stockton LLP, for this insightful presentation. Dr. Snyder and Dr. Pohl will review examples of choice-of-law clauses and choice-of-forum provisions that unknowingly change the economics of a deal, and they’ll also cover areas of foreign mandatory law which are most likely to surprise and override key provisions of technology transfer and IP license agreements. Patent law differences in overseas jurisdictions which affect cross-border transactions will also be presented and discussed.
