This one-of-a-kind, interactive forum where top diligence leaders will discuss best practices and help you develop strategies for preparing for, conducting, and applying the results of the IP due diligence process.

Intellectual property is one of the most important assets a life sciences company has. As such, when engaging your team members in the buying, selling, licensing, distribution or franchising of IP, the need to engage in a meticulous and strategically timed IP due diligence review is essential to preventing a disappointing or even disastrous outcome.

ACI’s 5th Annual Life Sciences IP Due Diligence Summit is devoted to providing corporate and IP counsel with expert strategies for assessing, valuing and commercializing IP assets when conducting strategic IP due diligence which is essential to nearly every corporate transaction. Our esteemed speakers will provide insights on what to look for during the due diligence process, when to report findings, how to communicate effectively within and across teams, and when to adjust your expectations and decisions as the process proceeds.
