Mayer Brown is pleased to announce the third program in our webinar series, Global Strategies: Doing Business Internationally. Focusing on the challenges and issues companies face when conducting business internationally, each session will feature a discussion of various issues relevant to US companies conducting business in countries around the globe

Please join us on February 23, 2011, as Mayer Brown partners Jim Ferguson and Greg Barton discuss issues related to management of competing tax and IP issues for multinational companies. A company considering a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, cost-sharing or cross-border licensing arrangement must consider the implications of such arrangements on IP enforcement rights and related legal issues. Similarly, when managing IP, law departments must ensure that they do not compromise the company’s tax position. This presentation explores the competing tax and IP legal issues and discusses ways of balancing these interests.

  • Learn IP issues associated with common migration and restructuring strategies.
  • Understand tax risks arising from centralized IP ownership and management, including the use of limited risk distributors.
  • Discover implications of exclusivity from both IP and tax perspectives.
  • Hear about potential comparable uncontrolled transactions arising from IP portfolio management.
