Joint ventures (JVs) and collaboration arrangements are among the most complex relationships a business can establish. Ownership of intellectual property (IP), such as patents, trademarks and know-how, that a partner brings to the table or that is developed jointly can become hotly contested. Like any marriage, a JV or a collaboration arrangement warrants thoughtful attention prior to commitment and ongoing open communication.

Please join Mayer Brown lawyers Michelle Ontiveros Gross and Joy Lee as they discuss:

  • Considerations when IP is being contributed to a joint venture
  • Managing jointly developed IP
  • Case law review: lessons learned
