Bird & Bird & Structuring IP Assets


Date: 03 December 2015
Time: 12.30 - 14.00    Venue: Bird & Bird 4/F, Three Pacific Place, 1 Queen's Road East Hong Kong


Ingenuity does not end with the creation of intellectual property. Ultimately, IP is only as valuable as the profit it gives when it is commercialised. Exploiting the maximum value from IP assets is often a complex combination of corporate law, IP licensing, and taxation. Many businesses operate on inefficient corporate and tax structures. This seminar will help explain how to put that right.

During our seminar, we will discuss and explain:
  • The ingredients of an efficient corporate structure
  • The key points to consider when licensing IP between group companies
  • The main elements needed for an efficient tax structure
  • Trends in international taxation that may bring change and new risks
This seminar will be of interest to:
  • Chief financial officers, and in-house tax officers
  • IP counsel and team
  • General counsel and in-house legal team
