Morrison Foerster is a sponsor of the SAPA-NE 25th Annual Conference: Poised to Pivot - Build Resilience in a Challenging Market. Bu Yin will present "Creating Value in and Through IP Portfolios in Challenging Times" during Session II: Drug Development to Deliver Great Impact to People.
A strategically constructed IP portfolio can add immense value to life sciences companies at every stage of the business lifecycle. When there is financial pressure to cut costs, IP portfolios should be carefully managed. This presentation will discuss strategies to align IP with the company’s business, including invention harvesting (e.g., top-down versus bubble up), claiming strategies, geographic coverage, and timing (e.g., accelerate or slow down prosecution). Care should be taken to preserve opportunities and allow flexibility in future prosecution and enforcement. The discussion will also cover key considerations to better position IP portfolios for due diligence in connection with fund-raising and transactions.
