Insolvency Issues Involving Key Intellectual Property


Morrison & Foerster is a preeminent IP firm and our group’s experience with key IP in insolvency matters is similarly impressive. Our clients are involved in cutting-edge intellectual property matters in the U.S., Japan, Europe, China, and a variety of other jurisdictions. Our restructuring lawyers often work with attorneys in our patent, corporate, technology transactions, and litigation practice groups to understand the true nature of our clients’ interests and develop creative solutions to protect these interests, whether our clients are facing their own financial hardships, dealing with a counterparty insolvency, or protecting against a potential insolvency event.

Our lawyers have specific experience advising clients on intellectual property rights in chapter 11 cases, and maximizing recoveries on their property rights in bankruptcy. We provide a range of services, from general advice on how to "bankruptcy proof" a license or contract, to engaging in complex litigation to protect valuable property rights.
