Foley Medical Device and China attorneys are leading an interactive, in-depth workshop on essential considerations for medical device companies as they expand their business in China at the Frost & Sullivan Medical Device Executive MindXchange conference in San Francisco, California.
The workshop, “Winning in China by Effective Business and IP Risk Management,” will take place on Tuesday, March 11, 2008, from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
China and other Asian markets present areas for explosive business development, and interest and opportunities in those markets have increased dramatically over the last few years. For U.S. medical device companies, the opportunities in China are unprecedented but require careful consideration of business structure and the protection of technology and intellectual property (IP) assets.
During this session, you will have the opportunity to engage in an informal roundtable discussion with top legal professionals on China and China-U.S. collaboration. Through hands-on, practical discussion based on real-life examples, you will learn:
- Different methods & legal framework a non-Chinese medical device company can employ to expand to China, and pros/cons for each option
- Top 10 IP and business due diligence issues for cross-border transactions
- “Do’s and don’ts” on International technology transfer, licensing, and portfolio management
