IP Transactions

Our IP Transactions practice focuses on transactions relating to the development, use, commercialization or transfer of intellectual property (IP) or technology of all types. We also work on commercial transactions where IP or technology is a driving factor.

On behalf of both large and small clients in a wide range of industries, our work includes:

  • Licenses, including for Patents, Technology and Know-How, Software, Data and Trademarks
  • Development Agreements
  • Joint Development Agreements
  • Research & Development (R&D) Agreements
  • Sponsored Research Agreements
  • Consulting and Services Agreements
  • Strategic Alliances and Joint Ventures
  • Supply, Reseller and Distribution Agreements
  • Marketing and Channel Partner Agreements
  • Terms of Use, Terms of Service, EULAs and Privacy Policies
  • IP Acquisitions and Sales

We work seamlessly with lawyers in our other practice areas, such as our Privacy and Information Governance Practice, to address the full range of issues that can arise in IP transactions. We also work closely with lawyers in our M&A and Private Equity Practices on the IP and technology aspects of transactions, such as assisting with due diligence and with structuring and negotiating the purchase agreement and relevant ancillary agreements.

Having deep experience handling transactions of any type or size, our lawyers are well versed in both the legal and business issues that arise in these transactions and have a strong track record of providing practical and efficient counsel.
