Is Intellectual Property Migration a Good Strategy for Your Company?

February 13, 2018

Intellectual property (IP) migration is a common tax strategy used by life sciences companies. Such a strategy involves the transfer of IP from the company’s U.S. headquarters to a foreign related entity. Historically, we’ve seen this IP migration as a tax strategy, but the rules are complex. And the questions are many, particularly after the passage of tax reform. This webinar will provide an overview of the opportunities and challenges surrounding IP migration, both for those companies considering this strategy and those already having undertaken it.


Agenda topics include:

  • Impact of tax reform on IP migration
  • Benefits of migrating IP – regulatory, tax and business
  • Good candidates for IP migration
  • Implementing an IP migration process
