IP Transactions and Licensing Lawyers | McDermott IP Lawyers

IP Transactions and Licensing


As your key differentiator and driver of success, your intellectual property—including patents, proprietary technology, brands, media, data and trade secrets—is a critical component of any business transaction.

While your IP portfolio matures, building a strategy around when and how to potentially monetize your assets is important in mapping your IP lifecycle. Whether you consider the purchase, sale or sharing of IP, or seek a restructuring, merger or acquisition, spin-off or financing, it’s critical to have a team by your side that understands not only the legal considerations of the deal, but also the nuances of your industry, business and competition. Our team of lawyers will advocate relentlessly on your behalf through all stages of a transaction and during negotiations at the deal table.
