The ASEAN Economic Community is nearing implementation, and with the free flow of investment set to mobilize M&A activities, investors, bankers, private equity firms, and other dealmakers are poised to capitalize on significant opportunities for investment. Intangible assets, in the form of intellectual property, play a vastly important role in such transactions, and must not be overlooked in M&A and joint ventures.
To comment on these issues and more, Alan Adcock, partner and deputy director of intellectual property at Tilleke & Gibbins, will discuss the topic “Intellectual Property as a Key Element for Successful M&A and JV Transactions” at a conference titled Mergers & Acquisitions 2014, hosted by Asia Business Connect. Alan will discuss the following main subjects:
- The importance and current approach of IP due diligence in Thailand
- How to identify and value intangible assets
- Key considerations on legal, technology, and strategies of IP assets
- IP due diligence prior to commercial transactions
- Case studies
Asia Business Connect is a leader in conference management, and provides training activities for major businesses in Thailand and in other countries throughout Asia. The conference will take place on November 20, 2014, at Centara Grand, CentralWorld, Bangkok. Alan’s talk will be held from 1.45 p.m. to 2.45 p.m. If you would like to learn more about this event, please visit the Asia Business Connect website.
