    Intellectual property is fast becoming one of the largest, and most valuable items on many organisations balance sheet. These assets can bring to light considerable risks, and opportunities, during M&A.

    By looking at the IP portfolio of an organisation, you can get an idea of whether you're strengthening, or weakening your market position and which assets will be the most valuable after the M&A.

    In this webinar, we'll be looking at the role IP plays in mergers and acquisitions, as well as:

    - What kind of due diligence to consider when looking into patent portfolios
    - How to use intellectual property to highlight, and avoid risks during M&A
    - How to make better decisions when navigating risks and opportunities

    How to lay good groundwork before outsourcing an FTO search Dylan O. Adams, Senior Patent Attorney | Hosted by Ruta Sudmantaite from PatSnap May 9 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We know that companies who innovate and patent new technologies have an array of tools they use to research ideas, project manage and look at patent data. Often large and small organisations will depend on external law firms to complete and sign off final FTO searches. This can be expensive and time-consuming, especially considering that your lawyers won’t be technology experts like yourself.

    So how can you reduce the time and cost and increase the accuracy of your FTO searches? We are joined by Dylan Adams, Patent Attorney and best selling writer to talk about how to lay the groundwork for your FTO, whether you are using an in-house counsel team or an external law firm.

    This webinar will discuss:

    * How to effectively describe your invention to an attorney
    * What an attorney needs to make search quicker
    * Prior art search that can benefit your FTO
