Thurs., Oct. 15, 2015 - Free One-Hour Webinar Hosted by NeoSystems Corp. and Squire Patton Boggs Focused on Minimizing Dilution of IP Rights in M&A
TYSONS CORNER, VA. (October 14, 2015) On Thursday, October 15, 2015 from 12PM-1PM EDT, NeoSystems Corp. and FedPubs will hold a very important webinar, entitled “Mergers & Acquisitions: A Focus on Intellectual Property Rights”, aimed at educating companies on the current rules that define intellectual property (IP) rights for U.S. Government contractors. This free informational webinar will hold critical information needed by CEOs, CFOs, Controllers, legal counsel, and key staff of companies who are working as, or are planning to either merge or acquire with an existing U.S. government contractor.
To conduct this hour-long webinar, NeoSystems Corp., a leading professional services company specializing in technology-enabled business process outsourcing (BPO) of integrated accounting/finance, HR, Contract Management and IT functions, has brought in Karen Harbaugh, Principal at Squire Patton Boggs, with over 15 years of drafting, managing and defending contracts with the U.S. Government, to be the lead presenter for this seminar. “Intellectual property plays a significant role in the valuation of companies today. Any dilution or loss of IP rights can drastically impact the current valuation, as well as the future financial worth of any company. This includes those companies working as U.S. Government contractors,” states Harbaugh. “Businesses which are unaware of their IP rights can be at risk of unintentionally abandoning their rights, putting their future net worth at risk.”
“Our number one goal is support businesses and making sure that they have the information and tools they need to perform due diligence and make sound, informed business decisions. With special laws and regulations in effect, such as the Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) and the Department of Defense FAR Supplement (“DFARS”), as well as different rules for IP rights for patents, technical data and computer software, and commercial and non-commercial computer software, understanding what your rights are as a business owner and U.S. Government contractor is often confusing, even for the most sophisticated players,” says Sandra Levy, Vice President of Contract Management at NeoSystems Corp. “By arming businesses which are working as or in the process of merging or acquiring an existing U.S Government contractor with a high level overview of IP rights under U.S. Government contracts, educating them on what merging or acquiring companies need to look for when conducting IP due diligence of the target U.S. contractor, and providing helpful strategies needed to protect their IP assets, we hope to help minimize any missteps or oversights that may inadvertently dilute their IP rights, prior to the completion of the merger or acquisition.”
