The attorneys at Federis & Associates Law Office prepare and review a variety of intellectual property licensing agreements. Our attorneys prepare a wide range of documents from trademark and copyright licenses to complex multiparty, transnational and trans-jurisdictional memoranda involving technology transfer and technical know-how. Licensing issues our attorneys assist with include:
- Tax Implications
- Tax Treaties
- Intellectual Property Valuation
- Due Diligence
- Merger and Acquisition Licensing
- Intellectual Property Audit
- Intellectual Property Rights Transfers
- Record Changes (name, title, address)
Our team regularly reviews license agreements for compliance with Philippine law. Where applicable, we assist clients in securing exemptions from the requirements of the Documentation, Information and Technology Transfer Bureau (DITTB). We counsel clients on intellectual property valuation and assist in finding and making connections for the commercial application of inventions.
We also advise our clients on tax implications and issues relating to licensing and agreements. Our attorneys can obtain official rulings from the Philippine Bureau of Internal Revenue to ensure that tax obligations are consistent with applicable tax treaties.
In addition, our lawyers perform due diligence, both comprehensive and limited, in cases of joint venture formation and in mergers and acquisitions. During intellectual property audits, we can conduct comprehensive searches for the status and all relevant details of target intellectual property rights to determine the scope of legal protection.
In light of the search results, we can coordinate the full and unencumbered transfers of intellectual property rights. When necessary, we record title changes and other type of transactions that impact ownership of intellectual property rights.
