Providing key legal and commercial skills essential to secure a successful agreement.
25-26 Nov 2021 + 2 more dates
Technology transfer and licensing agreements are frequently used by commercial entities and public or quasi-public bodies for the development of new business prospects and for cross-border expansion. This two-day seminar will give practical advice on the legal and commercial considerations essential for securing a successful deal.
The programme offers a comprehensive overview of all the key matters to be considered – by the licensor and the licensee – when dealing with international technology transfer and licensing agreements.
This seminar is not jurisdiction specific and is therefore ideal for those working both in the UK and overseas.
