    Today more than ever, IP attorneys should be aware of the many potential issues that arise when the owner or licensee of IP files for bankruptcy. 

    During this webinar, panelists Mark Salzberg(Restructuring & Insolvency practice) and Ivan Rothman (Intellectual Property & Technology practice) will provide practical, real world advice, including:

    • a review the treatment of IP under the "Bankruptcy Code," and
    • the rights granted to IP licensors and licensees when their counterparties file for bankruptcy and the options available to them (and the actions that they need to take to protect their interests).

    Panelists will also discuss how IP can be acquired or sold through bankruptcy, and strategies that parties can use before bankruptcy, to protect their IP rights, including the potential importance of IP escrow arrangements. 

    Rafael Langer-Osuna will moderate this free CLE program.
