Our lawyers are experienced with U. S. and foreign IP licensing including patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and know how. We assist clients in monetizing IP assets or acquiring IP rights from others through licensing agreements. A licensing agreement defines the rights and responsibilities of the licensor and licensee, the terms, compensation and whether the license is for exclusive or non-exclusive use.
While the transfer of intellectual property rights presents many opportunities, it can also open the door for risks such as infringement. Whether selling or acquiring a license, we work closely with clients on the myriad strategic considerations involved in negotiating, drafting and enforcing an agreement that maximizes both the asset's value and protection provided.
