About the Webinar

Date: Recorded: 18 January 2022
Duration: 1 hour


In the race to develop and commercialise valuable intellectual property, owners may fail to give due consideration to the benefits of establishing a holding company for their IP. This session explores why business structuring is an integral factor in IP development and what practitioners should be advising their clients at the earliest opportunity in the commercialisation strategy, including:

  • What is a commercialisation plan and why it is so important?
  • At what point does business structuring become important? Should a holding company be set up before or after IP is developed?
  • Complexities where there are multiple parties involved in IP creation, development and commercialisation and how to manage them
  • Assessing the benefits of setting up an IP holding company, including:
    • separation
    • financial
    • security and risk minimisation
    • efficiencies
  • Are there any disadvantages or risks to moving IP into a holding company?
  • What should be in the agreement between the holding company and its parent company?
  • Should the IP ownership be transferred from the parent company to the holding company or licensed?
  • Essential terms for IP licensing and sub-licensing agreements
  • Key steps in guiding clients through the commercialisation process
