Intellectual Property Issues in Contracts: How to Navigate Tricky IP Clauses in Contract Drafting and Negotiations


Event Description

Contract negotiations that involve intellectual property (IP) terms can threaten new risks to a company’s IP assets. Drafting and negotiating these terms require a well-informed and highly skilled eye beyond typical contract terms.

Whether it is a simple Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA) or and extensive Joint Development Agreement (JDA), most every section of a contract has potential risks of IP loss.


Discussion Topics include:

  • Common contract IP issues
  • Key IP Terms
  • IP Enforcement and dispute resolution
  • Tips for effective IP negotiations
  • NDAs, Joint Development Agreements, and more
