Intellectual Property – Commercialisation and Licensing

If your business has created intellectual property with real value, you may have the opportunity to licence or sell your rights in it. Alternatively, you need to purchase or license intellectual property from another organization to progress your own business.

In either case, intellectual property may be your businesses’ most valuable asset so ensuring it is adequately protected and that you have robust contractual arrangements in place to make the most of any commercial exploitation is vital.

Intellectual property is a complex area and the licence or transfer of it requires a lawyer who can quickly get to grips with the intricacies of your business and your commercial intentions. Our team in the City of London have the perfect skills for the job. We are technical, City-based experts who not only have experience on our side but also a practical, commercial and highly creative approach that means you will get what you need from your intellectual property dealings.

Our dedicated lawyers are passionate about intellectual property law and cover all aspects of the commercialisation and licensing of intellectual property including:

• Reviewing your intellectual property portfolio
• Negotiating and drafting transfer or licensing contracts
• Dealing with intellectual property breaches and disputes.

Using our in-depth knowledge of intellectual property and commercial law, we can not only negotiate the most favourable terms for your business, but we have all the practicalities covered too.
