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.
