Tax-efficient IP structures within a group of companies or on acquiring a new business are an opportunity to maximize bottom line revenue. Moving IP rights into favorable tax jurisdictions or setting up royalty payment channels can lead to material savings, as can taking advantage of R&D cost recovery safe harbors and other similar incentives in the U.S. and foreign tax codes. At the same time, care must be taken to avoid structures which could invalidate IP rights or make them difficult to enforce.

Adams and Reese takes a multi-disciplinary approach in this important and difficult area, coordinating tax and IP professionals to maximize the value of your IP holdings.
