The Vocabulary:

Contract and Licensing Law

A license is a legal agreement granting the right to use intellectual property - a patent or a trademark, for example - for a license fee.

In many cases, licensing serves as a means for market expansion by bringing new products to the market or by bringing existing products to new markets or regions. In this way, the licensor gains a profitable source of income while a promising market opens up for the licensee. Your individual interests are authoritative as we draft and negotiate license contracts for you.

Together, we will help you find the intersection of the legally optimal, the economically sensible and the strategically wise. The same applies to contracts for the sale of intellectual property rights and to research-and-development agreements.
