Deal structuring from an IP perspective (30 January 2018)

The importance of the IP component of a deal varies, by target and by sector. But where the business strategy of the acquirer/investor depends on the ability to leverage the value of the target’s innovation, technology or brands, structuring the IP aspects requires careful thought. This briefing explores seven key areas to consider at the outset of any deal including:

  • Your future business strategy
  • Valuations
  • Reach-through risks
  • Exchange control and export control
  • Tax
  • Branding the target business
  • Timing
