HongFangLaw Webinar – Best Practices for Licensing Agreements in China

HongFangLaw Webinar Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

Our team would like to welcome you to join us online for our latest Webinar on the best practices for Licensing Agreements in China.

At 4:00 PM Beijing Time, on September 23rd.

With a licensing agreement, the licensor grants the licensee a specific right to use their brand, patent, or trademark so that the licensor may retain the ownership rights to the licensed item while getting a form of royalty fee upon use.

There are many things that need to be taken into considerations when drafting a licensing agreement between two parties. For example, What types of agreements exist, and which should you use? What are the items you need to cover within your agreement? Are there any additional tax considerations you need to be aware of?

It is essential to consider the legal aspect of such a transaction, take proper tax advice, and gather local knowledge before building such relationships.

In this webinar, Jenny Liao, Senior Manager of Corporate Accounting Services in Dezan Shira & Associates, and Eric Su, Senior Partner of HongFangLaw will talk about how to draft a licensing agreement that benefits all parties, from both a tax and a legal perspective.
