Ensuring that IP and associated rights are owned by the right entity is a vital part of corporate asset management, which can impact the ability of your business to leverage the value of those rights when needed. Having IP in the wrong name can delay or even prejudice the ability to take action against third parties.

In corporate transactions, while the existence of the IP is often recognised in the transaction documents, the steps that are required to ensure that the rights are properly transferred can be overlooked as these can vary from country to country.

We can advise you on and manage the assignment process, by:

  • Identifying the appropriate IP and associated rights that are to be transferred
  • Making sure your interests in the assignment are properly safeguarded
  • Preparing the appropriate assignment documents
  • Handling IP office recordals of the assigned rights

So whether you need assistance with the transfer of IP in a complex corporate transaction, the acquisition of an IP portfolio or even the assignment of a single registered right, our experts will provide the support that is right for your business.
