Negotiating Licences and Agreements
In many collaborations or relationships, particularly those based on technology, the treatment of Intellectual Property (IP) is absolutely critical to success. Our detailed, practical knowledge of how IP works and the potential pitfalls allow us to give invaluable support in the negotiation of licences and other agreements.
From an initial Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) through to Memoranda of Understanding (MoU), joint development agreements, licences and assignments, we can assist and advise at every step to ensure that your interests are protected not only when everything goes as planned but also when the unexpected arises.
For smaller clients this often means dealing with the 'standard' agreements they are given by larger companies, which may not always be appropriate to the circumstances. In other cases we can provide standard or bespoke agreements, in conjunction with other professionals where appropriate. In all circumstances you can be assured of our keen eye and practical understanding of commercial realities.
