Leveraging your intellectual property assets can be a valuable component of your business success. Our team of lawyers has significant experience with regard to licensing arrangements involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and software and technology. We are able to offer our insight as to critical provisions to include in your agreements, as well as what provisions are unlikely to be regarded as a reasonable, thereby making the process more efficient and productive for you. There might be circumstances where selling your intellectual property assets is more beneficial to you than a licensing arrangement, and we can help you negotiate an appropriate assignment. We also work closely with our transactional lawyers with regard to purchase and sale of businesses that include significant intellectual property assets, and we are integrally involved in the due diligence with regard to intellectual property aspects of these types of transactions.
