Mergers & Acquisitions
Our client wanted to acquire a company which had pioneered a groundbreaking new digital signage technology, but during the due diligence phase, a third party filed suit claiming that an important part of the technology infringed its patent.
After the patent holder proved unwilling to grant a license to our client, we guided the client to a method of structuring the transaction in a way which effectively limited our client’s liability for any infringement ultimately proven, while guaranteeing that our client would have the benefit of using the parts of the technology which were essential to its business plans. That solution allowed the acquisition to proceed to a successful conclusion.
