This CLE webinar will prepare counsel to IP owners, licensees and licensors to protect their interests by allocating patent infringement risks during negotiations of indemnification provisions in a patent license or vendor contract. The panel will offer best practices for negotiating and structuring patent indemnification provisions to allocate risk.

Description

Indemnification provisions are often overlooked but are a critical part of any patent agreement. Drafting and negotiating indemnification provisions are crucial to protecting business interests and minimizing litigation costs.

In developing an indemnification strategy, counsel must be aware of the interplay between indemnification and IPR statutes. Estoppel and statutory bar requirements also mean counsel must negotiate and structure indemnity provisions with an eye to AIA changes.

Counsel to all parties must carefully consider the scope of liability covered by the indemnification obligation, liability triggers and indemnification of third parties when negotiating the contract terms.

Listen as our authoritative panel of patent attorneys examines structuring of patent indemnification provisions and what factors patent counsel should account for when negotiating and drafting indemnification clauses. The panel will offer best practices for negotiating and structuring patent indemnification provisions to allocate risk.
