A Canadian and a Polish competitor created a Polish-based joint venture to exploit their competing software together. Our Canadian and Polish members provided legal assistance to the Canadian Corporation to plan, negotiate, and proceed with investment and an intellectual property assignment into the Polish JV. It involved, amongst other issues, innovation management, transfer pricing for IP and know-how, software as a copyrighted work, and international branding and trademarks.
