In a highly fluid and personalized nature of the technology arena, Baker McKenzie's Reboots and restarts: Understanding technology M&As in Asia Pacific is a comprehensive guide that explores legal frameworks and laws on IP asset protection, acquisition structures in technology deals, and regulatory and licensing, foreign investments and employment retention in technology sectors across 11 jurisdictions in Asia Pacific.
Specifically, it aims to address the following:
- How can technology M&As avoid post-integration risks?
- How do tech companies protect patents, trademarks and copyrights?
- Are there significant entry barriers for foreign investment in technology companies? Are there structures to get around restrictions?
- How can tech buyers retain key personnel in the event of acquisitions?
Regulatory and licensing policies in each jurisdiction are also identified to learn about rules in new technology and business methods.
