In just a few short years, the IP landscape in Asia has shifted dramatically, and nowhere more than in IP monetization. As buyers and sellers swap places, and formerly quiet markets become transactional hotbeds, a clear-eyed view of the region is critical to success. In this webinar, PatSnap and noted investment banker and IP M&A expert Pallavi Shah will provide a bird’s eye view of the IP monetization ecosystem in the Asia Pacific region.

Key takeaways will include:

  • A data-driven overview of the “state of play” for APAC IP
  • Pallavi’s personal experience leading and advising on high-powered IP transactions in China, Japan, Korea, and other important APAC markets
  • How investors, operating companies, and licensing entities can take advantage of the opportunities (and limit exposure to the risks) in this dynamic region
