We counsel clients on commercializing their intellectual property through licensing agreements that give the owner maximum flexibility and the opportunity to share in revenue, define the rights of both parties and establish remedies for instances where a party paying for a license does not live up to its responsibilities.
We represent buyers and sellers in connection with the purchase and sale of intellectual property rights, including an assessment of the value of IP in sales and mergers. This involves drawing up agreements to protect IP during due diligence and negotiations when business secrets may be shared, auditing IP assets and ensuring that transactions reflect the full value of the acquired companies’ patents, trademarks, processes, trade secrets and other intellectual property.
