IP Licensing, Commercialization, and Technology Transfer
IP can be exploited, commercialized, or transferred in many ways. We understand them all. IP rights must be secured to protect against infringements and attacks. Licensing agreements have to comply with local laws and address how different countries treat IP. They also need to cover potential risks and provide solutions to issues that may arise during the term of the contract. We make sure your licensing agreements cover everything you care about.
It doesn’t stop there. Our team structures, drafts, and negotiates agreements. Many of our lawyers hold advanced degrees in technical and scientific disciplines. We don’t just know IP ― we also understand the technology and processes behind what makes it so important to protect.
