Binal J. Patel, along with Jennifer Hall, former general counsel – IP at Mars, Inc., and Jason Penninger, senior intellectual property counsel at Hill-Rom Services, Inc., present the Association of Corporate Counsel Chicago Chapter Downtown Lunch Program, “Negotiating IP Rights in Corporate Agreements,” at the East Bank Club.
A corporation may enter into many agreements that implicate intellectual property rights. They include: (1) employee agreements, (2) consulting services agreements, (3) vendor agreements; (4) joint development arrangements, and (5) merger & acquisitions agreements. Care should be taken when drafting these agreements to ensure that the corporation’s rights are properly identified, secured and risks identified and mitigated. The corporation may also wish to be adequately indemnified in the event third party rights are implicated. This seminar will share best practices when negotiating various corporate agreements to ensure that IP rights are properly aligned with the corporation’s best interests.
