When manufacturers and third-party service providers form partnerships, the goal is to build collaborative relationships that will ultimately benefit the end user. When disputes arise – whether from alleged intellectual property infringement, competition law violations, or “grey areas” in contracts – how much protection does a manufacturer have in its business processes and contracts?

This webinar is intended to provide in-house lawyers – corporate, intellectual property, antitrust, and litigation – with best practices for third-party/business partner contracts. The program is based on “lessons learned” from the groundbreaking $60 million verdict in the Avaya v. Telecom Labs, Inc./Continuant case, where K&L Gates represented third-party service provider Continuant.
