Distressed Companies Masterclass: What You Need to Know about Distressed Companies and Distressed Assets in Today’s Turbulent Economy

With the deterioration of the global economy, times are tough for companies in the U.S. and abroad and those who lead them. But a gloomy economic outlook presents opportunities as well as threats. Now is the time to ensure that you have up-to-date knowledge of the key trends and hot issues concerning doing business with distressed companies.

Morrison & Foerster has assembled a team of attorneys from our bankruptcy, intellectual property and commercial practice groups to present a series of three lunch briefings exploring different aspects of how companies and investors can turn the current market situation to their advantage.

Session 1: December 11, 2008
Intellectual Property Rights and Strategies in Bankruptcy

Although the U.S. Bankruptcy Code provides substantial protection for a licensee when the licensor of intellectual property becomes a debtor in a bankruptcy proceeding, that protection is neither perfectly clear nor comprehensive.
We will explore areas of concern for licensees in the event of a bankruptcy filing by the licensor and ways in which licensees may mitigate some potential risks.
