Experienced intellectual property litigator Peter Afrasiabi provides an overview of the key copyright, patent, trademark and trade secret questions that transactional lawyers should be asking when they perform due diligence reviews on behalf of their clients. Intellectual property assets are different from traditional assets in many critical respects, and failure to ask the right questions could lead to unpleasant surprises – and litigation – after a transaction is consummated. The course includes a checklist every transactional lawyer should be using when performing due diligence of valuable copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret assets to ensure that all the bases are covered.
