LES Toronto Chapter presents:


Know How

How To Capture and License It


Thursday, December 5, 2019
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM


Norton Rose Fulbright

Toronto, ON

Some technology licenses grant patent rights and limit the deal to valid claims.  Others broaden this to the “technology” and include the kitchen sink.  Often buried within is the promise to grant certain rights to the more elusive “know-how”. 

But how do the parties “know how” to effectively capture and value the ‘know-how” to make good on that the promise?

How does this work in practice when parties may range from universities to corporations with employees coming and going? 

Come join LES Toronto Chapter for what will be without doubt – a fun and informative event! 

Lunch will be provided
