Drafting IP Indemnity, Defense and Cure Provisions in Commercial Contracts


Event Description

Intellectual Property (IP) indemnity language can often be a sensitive and misunderstood aspect of IP-related contracts. Nevertheless, it presents a wealth of opportunities for bargaining and risk allocation when approached strategically.


Join us on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, at 12pm ET/9am PT, for the next edition of our IHC Contract Essentials Series, as Dave Stevens, IP and IT lawyer at the Stevens Law Group will discuss the general concepts of indemnities, defenses, and cures addressed in most IP-related contracts.


In this live interactive CLE presentation, Dave will:

  • Provide an overview of the general concepts of indemnities, defenses, and cures addressed in most IP-related contracts
  • Break down the key components of an indemnity, defense and cure language clause and explain their implications, and
  • Share invaluable strategies to help you maximize your bargaining power, whether you are providing or receiving promises of indemnity

Attendees will enhance their understanding of IP indemnity language and gain the skills to negotiate more effectively on either side of the negotiation table.
