With the deterioration of the global economy, times are tough for companies in the US 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, technology transactions, intellectual property, and corporate practice groups to present a series of three breakfast briefings exploring different aspects of how companies and investors can turn the current market situation to their advantage.

Session 1:  Thursday, March 26, 2009
Intellectual Property Rights and Strategies in Bankruptcy

Although the U.S. Bankruptcy Code provides substantial protection for the user 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 IP users in the event of a bankruptcy filing by the licensor and ways in which users may mitigate some potential risks. Our experts will also address issues of concern to licensors of intellectual property when dealing with IP users that are in financial distress.

The expert team of Morrison & Foerster partners include:
• Peter Davis, Intellectual Property
• Thomas Knox, Corporate and Technology Transactions
• Norman Rosenbaum, Bankruptcy
