Licensing Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks


Licensing is a simple way to exploit the value of your intellectual property or to avoid a possible legal action when adopting some one else’s intellectual property.  A well drafted license agreement will protect your interests in the event certain foreseeable events occur and can help you realize the most return on your investment.

We have been preparing and interpreting licensing agreements for over two decades.  We can help you draft up an appropriate license agreement and even negotiate the terms of the agreement.  In the event you already have a signed license agreement, we can help you interpret and enforce the agreement to ensure that your rights are protected.

We have extensive experience with the most common type of intellectual property license agreements, namely:

  • Trademark Licensing and Franchising Agreements
  • Copyright License Agreements
  • Technology License Agreements
  • Patent and Trademark Assignments
  • Joint Technology Development Agreements

Intellectual Property Created by Employees and Contractors

When ever hiring a new employee or contractor, it’s important to consider the ownership of any intellectual property (patents, inventions, copyright, etc) created by the employee or contractor during the course of their employment/engagement.  We can help you prepare and execute employment / retainer agreements and other agreements, with the protection of your rights in mind.  Well drafted employment or engagement agreements will ensure that you own the intellectual property rights that you want while protecting you from possible legal actions.
