Technology Transfer, Deemed Exports, and University Based Fundamental Research
We help clients achieve compliance and research goals involving complex rules on transfer of (or access to) controlled technology and/or software source code, including export-controlled, nuclear and healthcare-related technology. Advise on voluntary disclosures. IP protection and licensing. Acquisition. Offshoring. Technology transfer agreements.
We help universities understand when the Fundamental Research Exemption (FRE) applies. We help institutions navigate the Deemed Export and Reexport Rules and related employment issues. We also assist research institutions in handling review processes that allow them to more easily work with certain export-controlled information, and address joint ventures and other collaborations.
