Such inbound contracts include:
- Non-disclosure agreements
- Individual work-for-hire consulting and development agreements
- Entity work-for-hire consulting and development agreements
- Independent contractor invention assignment proprietary rights agreements
- Employee and founder invention assignment proprietary rights agreements
- Founder pre-existing IP assignment agreements
Strategic IP transactions
We represent clients in the design and documentation of national and global cross-border and domestic joint ventures, strategic alliances, collaborations, research and development, and other teaming arrangements.
We counsel clients on protecting, developing and monetizing their IP assets. We also help clients enter and succeed in domestic and foreign markets through value-added resale (VAR), original equipment manufacturing (OEM), distribution, licensing, e-commerce and other commercial arrangements.
We represent clients in the acquisition or in-licensing of technology, data, or tools, as well as with their out-bound licensing transactions and customer and end-user agreements.
